    Working with John was a complete pleasure. The man is a talented and clever song writer. Made my job of arranging and recording the horns really simple. Can't wait for the next one!

    A joyous song with John's signature songwriting character stamped all over it! Every song's a winer from his collection, with this commission being no exception.

    John came to me with another of his gorgeous songs, this one having a production twist of being more electronics-driven. I ran with this and we developed something distinctive yet fitting with John’s album style, still with those big strings!
    A lovely job with the usual great communication and feedback from John.

    It was a pleasure working on this project with John, beautiful song. He was open to dropping the key for me, and was patient when I became sick and had to record at a later date. Very professional, and communicates quickly.

    The amazing songs just keep coming. Another stunner from John's pen; a driving rhythm section and a vocal line with range for days! Two bridge sections and a key change really add to the full-scale development leaving you, at the last chord, fully musically satisfied! Great writing.

    The most stunning song yet from John, exquisite vocals and some beautiful oboe make this song my favourite production in this collection so far. A joy!

    John delivered another in a series of fantastic songs which we developed into a full production with a big string arrangement (and epic ending!). Another great commission :)

    Another beautiful song from the maestro. Think Randy Newman, Dr John.. this man has the spirit of the greats!
