Back soon …

Welcome to my spruced up new website courtesy of the webmaster of webmasters Howard Lester Designs.

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that things have been a little quiet on here for a while. I’ve been Busy With Other Stuff as the euphemism probably doesn’t go but I’ll be back soon with a gig at Pizza Express in July and another very exciting project which has been quietly gestating alongside the Other Stuff – Chris Lee’s A Troubled Man.  Check the other news for more info…

A Troubled Man

I am thrilled and delighted to announce a brand new project which will be coming your way soon. A Troubled Man is a song cycle written by Chris Lee inspired by the Wallender novels of Henning Mankell. Please check out the website for more info where you can watch the promo and listen to a demo of one of the tracks.

We’ll be gigging this later this year so watch this space for further announcements. Meanwhile you can also follow the project on Twitter and Facebook so please like or follow us for updates.

Pizza Express Soho, lunchtime 19 July … and Springtime in Brighton

I’ll also be back out there in a few months time with my own band.  Join me and some world-class musicians — Tom Cawley (piano), Geoff Gascoyne (bass) and Emiliano Caroselli (drums) — as we return to our favourite venue for the first time in a year with a new show.  Tickets available here.

Before that, I’ll be partying on Brighton seafront with the John Ongom Big Band,
