October 15:  I was honoured to be invited to perform in 2 gigs at the Bird’s Eye Jazz Club and Brooklyn Hall, Basel.  My friend, singer Maira Zaugg, put together the ‘Young Jazz’ event with a 2 hour programme of young musicians from Switzerland.  in 2 days I worked up a few numbers with the band and we played to sold out houses. I even had an hour-long live interview talking and performing with Maira on Radio X.  I had a brilliant time staying in beautiful Rheinfelden and visiting and ensemble playing at the Swiss Jazz School with tutor Michael Beck – an amazing venue newly built with facilities out of this world!
