Filming at the Hideaway

Well, I'm very excited to be recording a video for one of my tracks from the upcoming album. The location is the Hideaway in Streatham and we're going to try to capture some of the atmosphere experienced at a jazz jam which is the subject of the song 'The Jazzman'. I wrote this particular song after being inspired by an article I read whilst doing some research for a conference on 'Gender & Identity in Jazz'. The author of the article was describing his experience of attending several jazz jams back in the 1950s; the camaraderie and brotherhood, the ego, the battle and one-upmanship - I thought this was interesting material for a song.
