Recital season at Leeds University is just finishing, and I played on a couple of the jazz ones: George Millard‘s and James Kelsall‘s. Good fun. They all get recorded on one of those handheld recorders, so I’ve grabbed the audio and done a bit of tape-simulated mastering as best I can.
I’ll be putting some more up on my media page soon, but for now here’s a couple from George’s. He put together a septet with Steve Hanley (drums), Aron Kyne (piano), me (bass), Matt Yardley (trumpet), Ben Lowman (bari) and his teacher, Jim Corry (tenor). All of them were great and very generous with their time, and the recital just seemed like a really nice gig. Blues for CT is a Parker blues from Jim Corry’s Tribute to Atlantic Jazz project, and Clinicology is a Phil Woods head over Cherokee, with a Nigel Hitchcock intro stuck on the beginning. Enjoy:
