A collection for troubled times. Healing music, music therapy, sound that can, I hope, help improve our physical and mental conditions. This album is gentle, flowing, soft, featuring the Japanese Shakuhachi, Chinese Dizi, Indian Bansuri, the mesmerising steel Handpan and the lower breathy husky end of the tenor sax. Joined by voices, Indian percussion and weaving evocative keyboard lines

Live

Recorded on January 24th 2009. My father died that day. Of course what and how we play is a sum of our life experiences and deeply affected by those that we love. When I listen to what I played that night I just hear my dad in every single note. He seems to have brought out the best in me, as he often does. The lads did him proud too, they always give their all but found an extra special something on this night. August 2009.

A collection of tracks recorded between 1994 and 1999 taken from the "Second Skin" "Wonderful World" and "Music Man" albums plus a new old track and a new new track! The bonus tracks "Getting Late" is a woodflute melody which has been going round my head these past few weeks. "Lets Stay Here" is a real undiscovered find, it wasn't in the vaults or on the shelf, I didn't know it existed until sound engineer Robin Bowes tracked me down and sent me some live recordingd he'd made "off the mixing desk" at a Snake Davis and the Charmers show in Leeds circa 199?. A studio version did once exisit, on cassette only. Wow that's going back a bit.
