Rick Laughlin's Electet


Here is a short extract from a great new project run by Rick Laughlin. The music is very demanding to play but sounds fab!

Ealing Jazz August 2014


    I've included a little bit of backstage camera work from a recent gig with Paul Carmichael's band 'Flight'. You can't see me but I'm blowing away on Flute while the wonderfull Fergus Gerand and Richard Bailey perform great solos on percussion and drums respectively.

Sax Quartet arrangement of one of my full band tunes.

         Above is an arragement for sax quartet of the tune  'Not Being Funny'. You can also hear it in it's full band line up in the video below.   It was great fun arranging it although I am so slow I think it took over 6 hours! I am also pleased to say that the manuscript music is for sale in pdf form.

           Back in October I had the pleasure of filling in for Snake Davis on the m-people greatest hits tour. The sound is a little odd on the recording as all the musicians on stage were using in ear monitors therefore you are hearing lots of the out front sound bouncing back. I placed a camera on the stage as I thought it might be an interesting angle. I'm still not sure whether it is or not....

   I met up with some fellow Sax players last week to play through some quartet music. We had great fun trying some of the harder numbers. It takes a while to get used to playing in a quartet as the instrument is very demanding when played in this context. Your lip feels like it's going to drop off because you rarely get to take the sax out of your mouth. You also have to get used to counting in your head. It's no good taping your foot as loudly as possible hoping that everyone obeys your time. Can you imagine an orchestra doing this? Anyway on the above video is an arrangement I actually completed 6 years ago of a Bill Evans tune called 'Time Remembered'. The sax players are;

Soprano - Rob Hughes
Alto - Kit Mlynar
Tenor - Sean Freeman
Baritone - Jamie Michael Harris

    I also had to include this video of David Sanborn it sums up how I feel about music.
