Project Ensemble


This is an ever-changing ensemble, morphing into different sized groups, personnel and repertoire. Previous and on-going projects include:


Benny Golson Project- a quintet playing the compositions and arrangements of Benny Golson from Lee Morgan's first three Blue Note albums as well as his own.


Gerry Mulligan Project- this quartet plays the compositions and arrangements of the famous Mulligan-Baker quartet of the early 1950s.


Old Folks- a dectet consisting of a 'Birth of the Cool' line-up plus vocals (Recordings of the live gig can be found on the  Sounds page). The band's appearance in November 2017 at the Spotted Dog featured trumpeter Percy Pursglove and NY drummer Jeff Williams.
