We rounded the year off with a second outing for "Sweet Nancy" (songs from the classic Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley album) at Royal Albert Hall (Verdi Room) and then a fun afternoon performing with Family Jazz All Stars for a very lively and energetic audience at a school in Camden.
I also took part on a panel “Working as a Live Jazz Musician” for the Musicians’ Union at the London Jazz Festival. It’s been a challenging year for many, both economically and politically, but it was good to share tips and suggestions for surviving as a jazz musician in these difficult times.
I’ve really enjoyed working on different projects with a mix of different musicians this year - and there was lots of new material too. There’s more to come! I’m working on a new project and tour for 2018. I hope to be revisiting some venues as well as exploring new ones. So watch this space!
Until then, wishing you Happy Holidays and all the best for 2018!
