Hey Guys,

Beginning of May I was fortunate to be invited by bassist Lyndon Gray to come down to Adelaide to perform a few gigs at COMA and La Boheme. I had a fantastic time and got to play with some really great musicians including Dan Clohesy – with whom I recorded an album of octet music back in January.

I was promoting The Dilworths’ album and performing music with two bands while I was in town. I was very excited for my first experience of stepping of the plane and driving straight to the gig, meeting the band for the first time and then performing my compositions. They played the tunes really well and I has such a blast playing with them.

The Monday night was at COMA with Dan Clohesy, Lyndon Gray and Stephen Neville and Wednesday night with some of the teachers from the Adelaide Conservatorium – Chris Soole, Chris Martin, Lyndon Gray and Kevin Van Der Zwaag.

Some pictures were posted of the Monday night gig in which you can view here and a few in the slideshow below.

Hi Everyone,

This week I was fortunate to attend the Australian Bell Awards in Melbourne as a nominee in the Young Australian Category and it was a wonderful oppotuinty to meet some truly great musicians from both Sydney and Melbourne. My congratulations to Linda Oh who took out the Young Australian of the Year Award and also to Jonathon Zwartz who recently released a seriously good record “The Sea” and took out 2 Bells for best composition and best ensemble. The other nominee in my category was Nat Bartsh who I hadn’t met until the awards dinner where we were seated together and did a CD swap. I got back home this afternoon and put on her CD and was entranced by her music. Really great stuff. Another highlight of the  night was Kristen Berardi and James Sherlock’s performances (Kristin won best vocalist) – they stole the show and had the whole room at a stand still, mesmorised. It was great to catch up with her and Dave Theak – two of the nicest and giving musicians around.

I enjoyed an extra night in Melbourne (courtesy of my girlfriend Phillippa’s mother) and picked up some really great CD’s that I’ve spent my weekend checking out.
Here’s what I bought – check them out:
Kenny Barron  “What If” Featuring Wallace Roney, John Stubblefield, Cecil McBee and Victor Lewis
Katie Noonan & The Captains “Emperor’s Box” Featuring Stu Hunter (Best Album Winner Bells 2010) Cameron Deyell & Declan Kelly
Nat Bartsh Trio - “Trio” Featuring Josh Holt & Leigh Fisher
The World According to James “Lingua Franca” Featuring James Greening, Andrew Robson, Steve Elphick & Toby Hall

That’s all for now, coming up this week is video footage of the great Roger Manins and a series of top albums with some of the finest vocalists in Australia.
