Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time

“The Mood is Right”

Last month I had the pleasure of spending the day with Matt Anderson/Jiannis Pavlidis Duo recording a very special early Christmas  gift for you lot. You can download the festive result here.

“The Spirits Up”

That’s not all we got up to though, oh no. These guys knocked out that piece of nonsense in about 2 minutes flat, with all the care and attention of tenderising meat. What we’ve got in the pipeline for you next year is a treat and a half. A full length album of beautifully constructed standards by this duo. What else? Well there’s a live album by Kim Macari and her Locus project, a couple of little treats from Alex Munk and in January I’ll be recording Harry Ormes Kassledown Quintet. Busy busy busy!


“We’re Here Tonight”

As if you haven’t had enough from the cracking bunch of lads that are Drawing Hands. Here they are on the bloody radio with John Toolan from ELFM. Sam’s talking nonsense about jazz at 36:00 and the band are playing at 41:00


“And That’s Enough”

That’s your lot jazz fans, hope you all have a lovely Christmas.

James 🙂
