Dear friends and lovers of Autumnal devilishness,
I am so excited and pleased to announce that my new album [fourth one!] which will be released in 2012 is well on route for completion. A big thanks to all my wonderful ‘Aviators’ my musicians and contributors including the wonderful Tenor Wojtek Wentura who has graced my recording and Polish language ‘coached’ me and my fantastic music producer Nigel Wolf-Hoyle for your incredible energy and verve and humour. The themes of this new record centre on the events that have surrounded my music and events this year in 2011. Our ‘Escapologist Tour,’ funded by Arts Council England set about paying tribute to Kazimierz Piechowski and his remarkable escape from Auschwitz concentration camp with a very exciting visit from Kazik, now 92 in person to London in March 2011. We shared Kazik’s story with British audiences in the form of documentary screenings of our film, ‘Kazik and the Kommander’s Car‘ as well as giving concerts to all age groups and sharing Polish history with communities from a diverse array of cultural backgrounds.
