Here are some highlights from the Jadid Ensemble’s last gig.
I just had two great gigs in Preston and Bradford with Razwan Sarvar’s Bollywood masterpiece.…a twenty piece orchestra with dancers, for which I had to write 23 string arrangements. I am now about to start working on some string arranging for Paul Heaton, for the production of ‘The 8th’ at the Barbican and Lowry Centre. Can’t wait.
Had an amazing time with my band Unfurl in April. We got 8 tracks down for our new album. We recorded in Sheffield University by producer Andy bell, It was a really creative and inspirational time in the studio and we are delighted to be launching the new CD at this years Manchester Jazz Festival. That seems a long way off now with so many gigs coming up. PLease come down to St Margaret’s Church, Rufford Road, Whalley Range on 27th May to hear a great band, ‘the Building Bridges Quartet’.
Hello. I have not updated my blog for a while. Want to share with you a video of Unfurl playing at the Seven Arts Centre, Leeds in November. This tune is called Part Time Insomniac and it’s by our lead guitarist Jim Faulkner.
