Well the trio had a great time recording our CD in early October, with the help of the very talented audio engineer George Goerss. We have since had the recordings mixed and mastered by George, and some excellent CD cover and booklet design put together by Milton Andrews at Square Peg Design.
Next week we start a mini-tour of of the east coast of Australia to share our music and new CD with people in Melbourne, Canberra, Dubbo, Brisbane, Byron Bay and Toowoomba. The highlight will be our performance at the annual gypsy jazz festival in Brisbane, ‘OzManouche,’ where we will be supporting international gypsy jazz maestro Robin Nolan. That should be fun, and it will be good to meet Robin.
