Baba Bruja

@ Dark Mofo

Playing up in the rafters at the Dark Mofo festival with the small version of Stevies’s afro funk groove orkestra, Baba Bruja.  

a dream come true

@ Launceston Library

I've always wanted to play a gig in a library. Being able to play really soft in a very quiet environment. I've been able to play a handful of duet gigs in my local library to very calm and attentive groups of people. Very special. Thank you Friends Of The Library.


@ a gig in sydney

This photo was taken by my dear friend Aris Kartsonas at a recent gig in Sydney. I love the look of relaxed cencentration on my face.

Aris played guitar on my album SEPARATE JOURNEYS.


@ the Mona Foma Festival

This photo was taken while I performed a solo saxophone set on the main stage at the MoFo Festival.

MoFo is Tassie's very hip music festival.

'fighting with metal rods'

@ a tunnel in Launceston

I was playing shakuhachi with my friend Yyan in a reverberant tunnel in Launceston. A police officer turned up and sighed frustratingly. He said, "I got a call to check out 'two men in the tunnel fighting with metal rods', I'm guessing that's you guys."

my mentor

@ a gig in Sydney

Recently I bumped into the saxophone teacher who first taught me to improvise. Almost 40 years ago when I was in high school, Eddie Bronson told me to "play anything" on the tune 'I remember Clifford' by Benny Golson. Without him I wouldn't be playing today. 


@ Johnston Street Jazz

After a concert in Sydney with Kristin Berardi (switz) and Mark Lau (nyc) I was shown this image. A listener was moved to create this lovely image.
