Flute sonatina

My recently-composed flute sonatina was just broadcast on ABC Classic FM in Australia. It was commissioned by the terrific Australian flautist Melissa Doecke who plays it here; I accompany her at the piano. It's in 3 movements, a 12-minute listen if you'd like to take the time out to listen from the player below.

Collaboration with Sachal Vasandani

I'm looking forward to collaborating on Thursday October 21 at the Brisbane Jazz Festival with New York vocalist Sachal Vasandani (pictured). Sachal was named "Rising Star" in the 2010 Annual Downbeat Critic’s Poll.

As well as Sachal's material we'll be doing the debut of a vocal version of my song You Never Forget Love from the Resurgence Band CD Tell It Like It Is. I recently wrote lyrics to it.
