New drum!

I just found this little hero in the sublimely bizarre Tarlo & Graham on Chapel St. He’s only 27″ but (at least after some judicious tuning) he definitely punches above his weight. And comes with calf heads – just the kind I always seem to break!

There’s another (slightly smaller) one still there if anyone’s in the market.



Trans Local

Let me start by giving a quick plug to this upcoming concert series at Montsalvat, featuring local and international composers, improvisers and general awesomeness. You can find the details on the Gigs page or here.

For the first one (this Thursday) I’ll be playing Simon Charles’ Transmission for three saxes, flute and percussion. I’ve just been choreographing my part so hopefully I won’t send junk metal crashing to the floor like last rehearsal. But you never know…

Also on the program is Dylan Lardelli’s Arrangements for saxophone quartet and improvisations from Tony Hicks, Peter Knight and Scott McConnachie (all amongst my very favourite improvisers).

Should be a good night…



Welcome to my new site/blog!

This is very much a work in progress so if you check back in a few days or weeks you’ll probably find more to amuse you.
