“I did some recordings for you a while ago of all your JP low brass for your website for Pete Long, and I ended up buying the Euphonium you sent up to me to record off you as I was so pleased with it! The Euph has been on several films including Wallace & Grommit, Revenge of the Were-Rabbit, the computer game God Of War 1 & 2, a TV jingle for Mintos, a Dido record, several series of ‘Benidorm’ on the telly and I’ve just done four sessions for the BBC Big Band for Radio 2 where I’m playing it and soloing, so it’s been put to good use!”
