This year he has also taken time to form an exciting new project with some of the best young funk players on the South Wales scene featuring on tenor sax: Osian Roberts, bass: John Goode, keys: Dick Roberts, drums: Damian Pugh.
With this new set up he will be performing the music which lies closest to his heart; the jazz-funk and fusion based sounds which first enticed him to the world of music- the material he is most passionate about.
