Afternoon spent with Phil Gould, working on a song we are co-writing about Hiroshima, based on Bill Cobham's instrumental "Heather" from his Crosswinds album. It was Bill's suggestion in conversation with me 4 years ago, that his tune could be turned into a song, and when Phil and I were playing as opening act at Ronnie Scott's in London this last March,a backstage conversation returned to the events around Hiroshima and a visit by Cobham to the museum there which inspired "Heather".
So I drove over to South East London to Studio 99, owned by Mike Westergaard, and we started work on the song.
Filmed on Tuesday 25th June 2013, inspired by Philip Bloom's Weekend Challenge "Discipline", the idea being to edit "in camera", and present the clips exactly in order with no computer editing or jiggery-pokery. The length was supposed to be around 60secs, so I failed on that one!
