The piano and bass duo album “JPMB – Solace” I recorded with Matt Baker at La Buisonne Studios is now out on Snibor Records. It’s available on cd from http://www.sniborrecords.com/catalogue.html (or from me directly) or as a digital release on itunes, google and other platforms.
The album features six of my compositions and one by Matt, plus film themes by Bernard Herrmann, Alex North and Ryuichi Sakamoto. And one tune from the Muppet Show.
