Since 1996

Moody Blues bass player Lodge doesn’t release much under his own name and this is a best-of, drawing together band, duo and solo material.


This set is like time travel – soulful singer-songwriter Vance recording in Alabama's iconic FAME studios, where the late Rick Hall masterminded some of the greatest sounds of the ‘sixties. It is a fine match.



High Standards features guitar master Mike Pachelli in a small jazz-combo setting, playing familiar standards with style, finesse, and a hint of blues for added flavor…



Some beautiful piano here, with just the right back up from the rest of the jazz trio.
