    Have been listening a lot to the MP3s on your web site a lot over the last few days. Especially the title track. So amazingly beautiful :D Fully expect to be at Darbucka: can you pre-book? I am thinking you, new album launch, free venue AND Rob Jackson too (have wanted to see him live for a while): what a bill! :hyper: what great value! - will there be enough space for everyone?

    PS. Please play "Grace and Gratitude" at the lanch (not that you wouldn't, I guess, but just in case).

    thanks Detritus, I'm really glad you're enjoying the MP3s!

    No problem about booking - the venue holds a lot of people, so I think the chances of it being full are pretty rare...! I'll make sure you get in! :)

    And yes, have no fear, I'll certainly be playing the title track - at the moment, it's the only track of the new album I've actually learnt! I need to go back and work out those tracks I improvised so I can perform them... :)

    Hi Steve,
    just wondering if you got any gigs in France soon?

    BTW you music is truly amazing, I'm really looking forward to hearing the rest of the albums, so I will order your cds as soon as possible. :)

    Hi Skeld,

    nothing booked in France at the moment, but I'm hoping to come back over there soon - I LOVE playing in France, and have had quite a few trips to Lozere for gigs with French musicians. If you have any contacts with bookers/promoters, please let me know!

    I'm really glad you're enjoying the music! The shop on the website lets you view the prices in Euros, so hopefully that will make buying the CDs easier - if you got them all now, you'd get free shipping, and the extra CD that comes with the new album... :)

  8. Steve, Grace and Gratitude is just so awesome. I love that clip! :D
    I've emailed the bar to see if it OK for unders to attend, I'm thinking me and my girlfriend can go out for a meal for our 1 year. and hopefully after paying for the dinner I can afford your CD! :rollno: :p

    jazz on! ;)

    I will order as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I haven't got any paypal account...is the international money order the only other way to order from France?

    Hi Skeld,

    if you have a credit card, you can pay through paypal - it takes you through the registration process, which is painless enough, and then you just pay like you would with your card any other way.

    Other than that, IMO is the way to go - you should be able to get one from the post office pretty easily :) With any luck, we'll be joining the Euro before too long, and all this will be much much easier... ;)
