this is the second album to emerge from my musical partnership with Mikey Cooling. ‘Circus of Outrageous’ came out in 2017 and was recorded on the hoof, sometimes in, and under, very strange circumstances, but with ‘Pas de Deux’ we have recorded conventionally. Well, almost. Mikey’s studio is on top of a mountain in the South of France, in Picasso’s agent’s old chateau. So for ten days in May 2018 and another ten in May 2019 we recorded uninterrupted with the result that twenty-four tracks emerged that now form a strong and cohesive double album.
