Sunday the 17th I will play at La Cave Cafe.  Convivial owner Arthur Jordan contributes to the musical life of Paris with his venue hosting a wide and varied selection of music and musicians.  This is a bit of a new direction for me personally as I will be singing more of my own compositions. I will be joined by the super talented Australian double-bassist Gerard Mcfadden.

And also Marty Vickers on drums.

Hopefully this will be an opportunity to showcase more of my own compositions as well as a chance to revisit jazz and blues standards.  That being said I had best start writing the set list!
