Hello there everyone! Greetings from sleepy Liestal!....thats in Basel Land in Switzerland! Most of us are asleep here but that could be because I was just chatting to a friend in Miami and to my Mum in Montego Bay!! So things seem real quiet........until of course.... I get a text from Kalli Gerhards (Mr Bass Man). He says...... 'Check this out'. I click on the link and find I am in the Bolero Magazine for Men. I am in their September issue. I did a crazy photoshoot 2 months ago as a guest of Robi Weber (Piano Player, Composer, Writer and Swiss Jazz Award winner) and his good friend, Ernst Witz (Saxophonist, Photographer, Artistic Director).
It was crazy....... models, make-up artists and hair stylists, camera men and scene builders, glasses of champagne, smoke and cigars and me! I was told what to wear and someone played with my hair and I allowed a make-up artist to do my make-up.....
So the end result is.....'OOOOOOOH BOY!'

Hi Guys! Guess what? I am in the JAZZTIME TODAY. I was interviewed for the Swiss Jazz and Blues Magazine - JAZZTIME. I am featured in their September issue talking about my feelings on winning the 2011 Swiss Jazz Award with Offbeat Trio. I thought I might share the interview with you all. It would help if you spoke GERMAN, though. If not, just know that I was absolutely 'chuffed' by the whole thing!
