New Year, New Lockdown, New Music.

If you missed this gig on Tuesday night (we nearly did!), you missed a treat! Ten or more numbers, all originals, some dating back to the “noughties”, some which were world premieres. Influences ranged from Jobim to Hefti, Strayhorn to Chopin (?) – something there for everyone – and all impeccably performed. Cometh the lockdown, cometh the doctor!

Asked if these might be regular gigs – once a fortnight, perhaps? – the answer was “definitely, maybe”. Watch this space…….

Good news, the link should still be active – see here.

I've just been able to watch this - the day after - but it was still live. What a superb session of original compositions - beautifully paced, and played by Maestro Paul. A real treat.
