I’ve been having a little fun making a lovely promotional video for my gorgeous big band. Do enjoy it below!



It contains some never before seen footage of our soundcheck at Pizza Express Jazz Club for our album launch and of our LINCOMPASS LONDON tour in 2015.

The big question is what is next for the band? If you have some super ideas do get in Contact!

The last Wednesday of the month and often featuring tremendous guests (Recently including Shane Hampshire, Steve Trowell, Iain Mackenzie and Anthony Kerr) this is traditional big band playing the catalogues of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, Terry Gibbs and many more!

Christmas 2018



Last night my big band and I had an absolutely incredible time at the Vortex Jazz Club playing some Christmas Classics with a Linham twist alongside our heady mix of original material. The audience response was huge and it was a memorable and special evening, least of all because I sang an original song with the band and all of the saxophones had to play glockenspiel! Check out a video of that below kindly stolen from the twitter of trumpet superstar Tom Syson.




If that doesn’t make you feel Christmassy I don’t know what will.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
