In the sung words of Melba Moore "This Is It..."

Yes, this is it! This is my website and my opportunity to communicate my passion for soul, jazz and funk to anyone out there who may be interested. After almost 40 years of listening I now get to spend some time bringing a passion to life while hopefully bringing some new music to those who may not yet have experienced the wonders within it.

It is my hope that you will enjoy visiting the site and that you will return time and again. Right now, please accept my invitation to explore and enjoy the magic of soul, jazz and funk.

'Bitter Suite' - 1981, CBS Records

Nearly 40 Years a Soul Boy, Funkateer and Jazz Buff!

It all started back in 1980 with Earth Wind and Fire's classic 'I Am' album, a double LP set of accessible jazz fusion called 'Bitter Suite' and 'Slipstream The Best Of British Jazz Funk', a compilation representing the emerging Brit Funk movement pioneered by the likes of Hi-Tension, Light Of The World and Level 42. It was the compilations which sowed the seed while Earth Wind and Fire remain my favourite band to this day (more...)
