Jazz and Art Music

Jazz and Improvised Music is a journey and passion I have pursued throughout my career and continues to be the main element of a continuous musical development .

Here grouped with Steve Russell and Scott Hills is a clip from the Long Running Jazz presentations by Jules Kelly in Lismore Australia .

Above at the very top is a clip I shot and music I wrote and performed on my album Actual Asset.. It features Dave Sanders on Drums and Steve Russell on piano.

Below that is a clip of Steve and I with Jamie Pattugalan, live at the Northern Hotel in Byron Bay.

The legendary Australian Saxophonist ,David Ades who passed away  a couple of years ago was an extraordinarily prolific instrumentalist. He also found time to help many people less fortunate than himself beyond normal expectation. He was a fearless surfer, a father and a wise friend . This work, the 14th Step , was recorded at the Muse Agency in Byron Bay and features myself and the awesome talents of Will Guthrie on drums .
