Taken at the Church Studio, London. I worked with Paul on the track 'Whole Life' with Dave Stewart producing and co-writing. We initially worked at the Church studio in London for two days - then later two more days of overdubs in LA. The track was released just as a download. It was a great experience to work with Sir Paul.
Taken in the kitchen of the Chapel Studio Los Angeles. These sessions for were for Bon Jovi's 'Destination Anywhere' CD. I played piano, Hammond organ, and synths. Initial recordings were done in LA at the Chapel Studio - later I did keyboard overdubs in London's Sarm West Studio.
Taken in 1992 - the heyday for smooth jazz when Acoustic Alchemy were pop stars on the jazz circuit and disc jockeys had some say in what they played - i.e. before Clear Channel. This was taken in Dallas - a huge fan base for Alchemy back then.
A rare shot of 'Blitzfish' taken in my first flat in London around 1977. I wrote for the group and we played a variety of gigs, including a doomed tour of France with soon to be Alchemist, Greg Carmichael
I recorded with Smooth Jazz artist Johnny Thompson for his Romantic Night CD. We put down several tracks live with Will Kennedy from the Yellow Jackets. Marc Russo, fellow Yellow Jacket, played sax.

Taken at the Ana Mandara San Francisco CA. I first worked with the great trumpeter Eddie Henderson in 1991, when I was hired to play for a week in his band at the Bass Clef Jazz Club in London. Since then we have played many times over the years, as a duo and in a band context. It's always a thrilling experience for me, and I have learned much from him.

Taken at the Hammersmith Odeon Concert New Year's eve 1990. I toured with Ska band Madness for one year, playing concerts over the UK, Australia and America. The highlight was this televised date for New Year's Eve.

I worked with Dave on sessions for 5 years in London, America, and France - it was a remarkable experience. I contributed to 25 albums and 4 major film scores. He is the hardest working person I ever met, and learned a lot from him and am forever indebted. This photo was taken while we were on tour in Germany promoting the 'Greetings from the Gutter' CD. Also on this tour for some of the dates were Bootsie Collins (Bass), Bernie Worrell (Organ), and Candy Duffer (Sax)
This was one of my last sessions with Acoustic Alchemy, for the Notting Hill 2 Step DVD. I was a member of Acoustic Alchemy from 1988-1995 touring, recording, and writing. My first recording sessions with them were for the 'Reference Point' CD in 1992. 'Back on the Case' (for which I contributed writing on 'Fire of the Heart' and 'Clear air for Miles' followed, and then 'The New Edge' - all recorded at Hansa Hause Studio in Bonn Germany
