I love to travel and I'm lucky to be doing a bit this month. I am tutoring on the Dordogne International Jazz summerschool through the 1st week of August. This takes place in a very old Chateaux in the tiny village of Monteton. It is always a great experience to be isolated in such a beautiful enviroment playing music and hanging out with people that all share a passion for music. Once I get back from that I'm taking a bit of a break in the south of Italy to chill out and work on some music for a few gigs towards the end of the month. I'm very much looking forward to heading to Croatia on the 25th with Zara McFarlane. She writes great music and has an incredible voice, plus Croatia is somewhere I've never been to which is always an added bonus. I am also very excited about 3 nights playing the opening set at Ronnie Scotts on the 28th, 29th and 30th August with a band lead by Ant Law featuring Kevin Glasgow and Gary Husband. These three musicians are absolutely terrifying and we will be performing a set of Ant's music which is both challenging and beautiful in equal measures.
