Album Review

from HSK EP: “Trio HSK gives Wayne Shorter’s “E.S.P.” a dynamic reading. It’s not without humor, too—the closing bars, where the trio slows down the tempo and engages in a series of false endings, form a light-hearted contrast to the tension created across most of the tune. Harrold gets the composer credit for the charmingly- titled “Stabfest.” It’s an apposite title, as the tune is characterised for much of its length by jagged, sudden, twists and turns. Series’ guitar is at its spikiest here.” Bruce Lindsay Allaboutjazz

Willing to teach

Beginner to advanced


Have taught for over 15 years at amongst others: Fettes College Edinburgh, Cargilfield School Edinburgh, London Academy of music. I am keen to find a way of learning the guitar that each student enjoys individually and try to help with that. Areas I can help with include: Improvising concepts and ideas (e.g.through chords changes, motific development, how to build a language etc), Sight-reading, learning and building repertoire, transcribing (learning solos from the record etc), metronome use, developing rhythm, Chordal vocabulary, whilst my main interest is jazz I can also help with Classical guitar(beginner to Grade 8) and traditional Scottish/ Irish folk accompaniment.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
