What a way to begin an experiment with blogging..! I have the unparalleled joy and sense of achievement to be able to introduce you to my first professional showreel!.
Last November I took my big band to the Hideaway club in Streatham, south London, and as part of the London Jazz Festival we played a sold out gig to an extremely appreciative audience. The Hideaway (or 'Hideaway' officially) is a superb new club of four years vintage tucked away literally hidden behind the facade of Streatham High Road just about opposite Streatham station.
The venue is fully equipped with great audio and visual capturing tools so I made the most of both and had the show recorded. I hope you enjoy the results so far!
