New release from The Steve Fishwick/Osian Roberts/Frank Basile Sextet, released on Hard Bop Records. 'The Empire State' is a follow up to the previous release 'When Night Falls'. We will be touring the UK in February 2016. Check the Shows page for details.
Also, a new recording from the Najponk trio released on the Animal Music Label. This CD features the great George Mraz on bass!!! It was real pleasure for me to record with George after listening to him on records and concerts over the years. His recording credits read like a who's who of Jazz. Some of my favourites are the recordings he made with the Tommy Flanagan trio in it's various incarnations.
