Jazz music and dance/electronic music are definitely my favourite styles, although I’m very fond of folk too.
Jazz: Joe Zawinul, perhaps my favourite musician! He was a keyboard player, composer and the founder of the amazing Weather Report. Keith Jarret and
Herbie Hancock are to of my other favourite keyboard players and pianists.
Other jazz musicians I adore: Courtney Pine, John Scofield, Gary Burton, Pharoah Sanders, Victor Wooten, and Jaco Pastorius. And of course the big
two: Miles and Coltrane.
Dance music: Tom Jenkinson, aka Squarepusher. Tom is a talented bassist and drummer as well as a brilliant electronic composer. I’m also very much
into Richard D James, aka Aphex Twin, that other huge name in dance music.
I grew up with my dad’s taste in folk music: Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen etc.
