Hello My FriendsHere is an update about some of my gigs in the near future.
These are all by GPS Trio plus friends.
GPS means the wonderful Graham Jones on double bass, the excellent Pete Moxley on keyboard and the very modest Steve Salfield on saxophone – we will be playing some standards and some less expected music.
GPS also means Global Positioning System – we have no idea where we are going, no map and we depend on messages from space based radio navigation to know what to play next.
They are all very enjoyable occasions, and I hope you can manage to get to some.
