His work covers all genres of music, especially contemporary music, jazz and classical.
He has broadcast on all the major radio and television networks and last year his trio played a four night run in Birdland in New York.
His piano playing and arrangements can be heard on more than 50 albums.
Among the many giants he has worked with are Elvin Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Buddy Greco and Johnny Griffin.
He’ll be joined by Arnie Somogyi on bass and Clark Tracey on drums at Herts Jazz.
