May has been a busy month and I’ve been writing some new music for my quartet as well as being invited to play with Grammy award winning vocalist Patti Austin for 4 shows at Ronnie Scott’s from 13th-14th May. Patti will be paying tribute to Ella Fitzgerald in her own unique show “Ella – Now and Then” featuring an all star London band and arrangements by Patrick Williams and Gordon Goodwin.
