Michael Jackson – Human Nature

Blissful, soulful track, reminds me of being young, listening to the Thriller Album on my Sony Walkman.

Rotary Connection – We Are The Black Gold of the Sun

An absolute classic, the piano riff and the vocals. Pure class and deeply soulful. I love all they did.


George Benson – Give Me The Night

Herbie Hancock on keys, George on vocals, what’s not to love!

George Benson- Give Me The Night

Maceo Parker – Cross The Tracks

The song I share with my sister Charlotte as one of our favourites! Get’s us on our feet every time! FONK!!

Maceo and The Macks – Cross The Track (We Better Go Back)

Classic, soulful house at its best! How can you not dance to this? Hands in the air anthem!

ee Morgan – The Sidewinder

Coming from a jazz background I have to say this track hits all the right notes! Groovy as hell!

Lee Morgan – The Sidewinder

Sarah Vaughn – Make The City Ours

My jazz roots also cover the sounds of Brazil, Milton Nascimento wrote so many beautiful melodies. This one I’ve played with my band so many times, it never gets old! And the middle 8 is sublime!

Sarah Vaughan – Make this city ours tonight

Talk Talk – It’s My Life

My funeral song! Lol! Classic 1980s pop, bad hair, bad fashion and a great video!

Ella Fitzgerald – Lullaby Of Bird Land

A jazz standard, I’ve sung it so many times! Ella sings it the best though, pure class.
