The year ended with an inspiring Jazz Symposium at the Sydney Conservatorium, a few concerts and teaching. Now time to complete a score of one of my tunes Catapult. The arrangement changes have taken a little while but it is shaping up now. It features an exquisitely passionate solo by David Ades from a live concert at Byron. Steadliy writing my Ph.D., chapter by chapter, and grabbing every moment to practice and compose.
Looking forward to some collaborative songwriting projects and recording my arrangement this year.
All the best everyone,
Flashback: Monterey Jazz Festival Program from 1994!
Culling paper work in my office I happened upon an old festival program and album notes. I was only in my early 20's at the time. Page 16 of the booklet - Brass Machine (Australia)! We recorded an album at Fullerton College LA, with Chuck Findley, recorded and produced by Jim Linahon. I'm going to dig out the album (old school) and check it out.
