The Con on Friday, new band, new music

Only a few days until the Con Cellar Bar on Friday night (1st of Feb). I’ve written a whole set of new tunes for a new sextet, the line up is

The line up is:
Josh Arcoleo – tenor
Tom Challenger – tenor, clarinet
Lewis Wright – vibes
Sam Lasserson – bass
Jeff Williams – drums
And I’m on various saxophones and clarinets

I am finishing up the parts now for everyone and am feeling a mixture of fear and excitement. But I’m really looking forward to it and it feels like it’s been a long time coming.

It’s a double bill with Martin Speake who is playing in a trio with the amazing Kit Downes and Jeff Williams, which frankly sounds incredible.
