Where would this album be without pianist, Hugh Barrett and guitarist, Victor Rufus!
Hugh was fabulous arranging 3 of my original tunes, City Lights, Open Your Mind and City Of Yes.
Hugh also spent countless hours putting down arrangements for some of the jazz standards on the album! He is also such a great pianist! It has been an honour to work with him.
Victor did a wonderful job arranging my tune, Tamar Dreaming. As one of Canberra’s go-to guitarists, he has been a key part of Bella Groove for over a year now. So it felt natural to have Victor play on my album.
Victor is heading off to New York soon to record an album. He will be missed!
I can not forget pianist Don Fraser, the original Bella Groove harmony player. Don is now living in Melbourne and playing the local traps. Don arranged my fun swing tune called Should We…?
