about

As a successor to From The Heart, this album featured the later writing and arranging I had done for the trio, and I was really excited about documenting it.

Drummer Gene Calderazzo was unfortunately unable to make the couple of recording days we had in the end, (except for one morning’s track recording on one of the days) so I tackled a couple of the pieces myself playing drums, in stages - dubbing on piano performances, then taking over the next part on piano, catching up back at drums method etc! No click tracks, to keep it all feeling emotional and “human”. All built very organically. (Mick Hutton did a great job overdubbing bass later on the tracks where I used this method: Trio, Oleo and New York City.)
It also transpired Billy Cobham (who I was working with a lot at that point in my life) was in town, and to my delight he came in and played drums on a few remaining pieces with Mick and I.

I continued the theme of interspersing the playlist with arrangements that featured vocals, and was delighted this time to interest Mark King, Hamish Stuart and Christine Tobin in coming in to perform vocals with me. What a pleasure! I indulged in a bit of further diversification a little, too. Enjoyed integrating my (extremely limited) Spanish guitar playing (having arranged for guitar inclusion on two songs) and even brought along my charango for the track Souvenir.

This album plays here more or less exactly how it was originally released, with the addition of the two bonus tracks we did as the real trio that were recorded on a slightly later recording session.

It’s been fun to revisit this and From The Heart - two old long ago deleted titles of mine - and hear all the music again! I hope you enjoy the ride!
