Free live EP to download; site reorganisation

I have reorganised the site to split up the Music and Audio and Video  pages.

At the top of the latter (or right here) you can download a folder containing five tunes recorded at 2018’s gig at Inkwell Arts, in Leeds.  The set was a combination of standards, Lee Konitz repertoire, and arrangements of music from the Blade Runner soundtrack by Vangelis.

Take a listen!

At Inkwell, Leeds

Matt Anderson — Saxes
Martin Longhawn — Piano and Synths
John J. Williamson — Electric Bass and Fretless Bass
Steve Hanley — Drums

Recorded and Mixed by Chris Milnes

Mob Wife, A Mafia Comedy

This week I’ve been playing bass for the UK development workshop production of a new musical called Mob Wife, written by Michael Mott and Corey Skaggs. It’s on at the Cockpit Theatre until Saturday 26th Jan. Lots of fun, some great music, and it’s been unusual and fun to witness the early stages of a new show. Cheers to MD Dan Tomkinson for getting me involved.
