emuliJazz update

It's been a while since I last posted anything, but here is an update on what's been going on with me.

In January of this year I was appointed as a Director of the not-for-profit record label and book publisher Jazz in Britain, and things have been going pretty full-on ever since then.

I'm fulfilling a number of roles at JiB including all the design work. Recent releases and publications I've been involved in include the first release as a leader by British percussion maestro Trevor Tomkins, a forthcoming release to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of sax phenomenon Tubby Hayes, and a biography of composer and polymath Neil Ardley.

Another forthcoming project is a release by Trevor Watts' Original Drum Orchestra comprising performances from their 1989 UK tour, which I had the honour of designing and producing, and is set for release at the end on May.

And finally, as they say, following on from Jazz in Britain's publication of Barbara Thompson's autobiography Journey to a Destination Unknown in 2020, we are honoured to be releasing First Light, a CD of archive recordings which is being launched at a Memorial concert at London's Union Chapel on 2 June.
