I’m delighted to be premiering a brand new show at the Crazy Coqs on 2 and 3 May.
FLYIN’ HIGH is a coming look at travel, from Albuquerque to the Zambezi, using the words and music of composers and lyricists from Bacharach to Weill. As an intrepid traveller, having visited over 65 countries, there are lots of comic moments!

My new CD, Shades of Blue, recorded live at The Pheasantry in London was recently released and is available for download on i-Tunes or purchase at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk or LMLmusic.com
It’s a cool mesh of jazz-cabaret, which allows me to explore my fascination with the word “blue,” from music and sound to color… and naughty to nice. Tunes like Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies” are comfortable alongside companions like Stevie Nicks “Landlside,” Jobim’s “No More Blues” and “The Waters of March,” Todd Rundgren’s “I Saw the Light” as well a ditty titled “Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives to Me.”

Don’t miss the excitement. My new weekly open mic at the Crazy Coqs in Brasserie Zédel starts at 10 pm tonight.
Hope to see you there!!!
Shades of Blue CD will be released officially in August, and I have 3 CD launches scheduled already!
London – Wednesday, 18th September – The Pheasantry
New York – Wednesday, 9th October – The Metropolitan Room
Tulsa – Saturday, 30th November – Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame
Commencing on 18th April, I will be hosting a weekly open mic at the amazing Crazy Coqs. It will be geared for both the jazz and cabaret/theatre communities, and will feature Michael Roulston on piano and Jonty Fisher on bass. Doors open at 10 pm to take names, and the music will begin at 10.30, ending at midnight.
It’s a terrific opportunity for both rising and existing stars to do a turn on the stage at what is arguably the most beautiful music room in London.
Hope to see you there!!!
