Monday 3 July 2023
Normally by this time of the year I've curated a list of albums that I've really liked so far during the course of that year. This year, so far, I haven't got around to it - and I blame being busy - and I do mean busy.
So ahead of that list, here are my excuses, in no particular order:
The weather was too hot in June
I've been on holiday
The studio has been refurbished and it took a lot of time
My book got published.
Jacob Young: Eventually.
Keiko Matsui: Euphoria.
Duncan Eagles: Narration.
Gretchen Parlato & Lionel Loeke: Lean in.
Eliane Elias: Quietude.
Billy Childs: Winds of change.
Billy Valentine: And the Universal truth.
