Dear Simon - you are very kind.

Your home studio is definitely one of my "happy places" so thanks to you for making these sessions happen. What I like above all is the spontaneity of what we do - as you say second takes are rare, and sometimes magic happens. Here's a playlist of my favourites from all these sessions, very much my own personal (even wayward) selection.


There will be more!



Simon H

Cheers, Nick - I'd forgotten so much of this stuff!!


I tweaked the playlist running order a bit. There's some great work from you all across the tracks.

Your solo on this one... fabulous...


Simon H

Gosh - that is rather lovely. I have no idea what I'm doing there, although it's clear that Pat Metheny left something of an impact when I was at an impressionable age :-) Beautiful clarinet playing!
