Gammy Leg Catch Ups

I broke my leg about a month ago. As such I didn't bother with any of this online news wotnot. 

But, despite cancelling all physical work, it has been a very busy month of project successes:

One Jewish Boy opened at Trafalgar Studios London, with original music composed by me.

SETT - A new album by Dirk Serries, John Edwards, Daniel Thompson, Benedict Taylor for preorder & release on A New Wave of Jazz

Laila Aur Satt Geet - a superb film with music by me and Naren Chandavarkar went to Berlinale in competition, then onwards to the rest of the world.

Evening at Jazzblazzt - a new album by Dirk Serries, Benedict Taylor, Martina Verhoeven for preorder & release on A New Wave of Jazz. 

My 9th solo viola / violin album was recorded hours before leg smash time, and is currently being prepared for release.
