Abram Wilson Starts Rehearsing for London Jazz Festival 2011

I just finished a rehearsal for our London Jazz Festival Performance this year at Harrow Arts Centre on November 18th with Reuben James - piano, Alex Davis bass and Dave Hamblett - drums. I know what you're saying. Why are we rehearsing so early? It's because we are going to make sure this gig is GREAT. We'll be playing music from my Life Paintings cd as well as a collection of newly written compositions inspired by artist, Sheila Maurice-Grey called Singing Pictures.
