The selection below is from the acclaimed recording by Richard Niles' LA based Pop Big Band project Bandzilla from the new album Bandzilla Rises.

This next track is the lead single from Norwegian Singer Songwriter Thomas Dybdahl hit album What's Left Is Forever featuring Producer and Bassist Larry Klein and ex Steely Dan guitarist Dean Parks. My drum part starts at the chorus... The loop under the verse, not me!
This band enjoyed chart success a couple of years back with the single Enough Time. A couple of tracks were synced for TV commercials and the intro of one track Forgetting What We Know was used as teaser for Sky Sports football coverage.
This is from the latest album on ITM Records by tenor saxophonist Alan Skidmore recorded at Berlin's Philharmonic Hall. The album also features Mike Gorman (piano) and Aidan O'Donnell (bass). This is some of the most intense jazz quartet music that I have ever recorded. Look out for the extended drum solo on Impressions. This was released as a double CD. The alternative CD featured the late great Tony Levin on drums on what turned out to be his last ever recording.
This was an album from a couple of years back with legendary British vocalist Georgie Fame. I am really proud of some of the music on this album as it was one of those evenings when musically it just flowed. Featured on this recording are some great British musicians; Alan Skidmore (Tenor Saxophone), Steve Melling (Piano), Geoff Gascoyne (Bass).
Another album featuring the great British vocalist Georgie Fame. On this album appearing alongside some great musicians including Alan Skidmore, Dave Liebman and the String Trio of New York.
