King of the Swingers

Well, in the last few weeks we've been in the USA, Italy (twice), Ireland, Holland and Belgium not to mention the length and breadth of the UK! Read on for what's coming up next!

Jazz Travels & Buckingham Palace

In the past couple of weeks we've played alongside some amazing people at festival around Europe including our freind Chick Corea in Paris and Arturo Sandoval in Switzerland. We then returned to two amazing performances in the gardens of Buvkingham Paace as part of the Coronation Festival. All in all, it's been an amazing couple of weeks!
