Back in February I gave an unusual recital with two friends at my old college, Churchill College. The performers were Karys Orman (baritone saxophone), a graduate music student at Churchill College, Chris McMurran (piano), an undergraduate medical student at Trinity College, and myself on trumpet, flugelhorn and cajon.

We videoed the gig but it wasn’t until the Easter weekend that I got a chance to edit the videos and upload a selection to Youtube. Here’s a tune written by me (inspired by the writing of Gerry Mulligan) and a classic standard in versions by Chris and Mulligan:
