Giancarlo Susanna 
I'm sorry to see the Italian music journalist Giancarlo Susanna has passed away. He got in contact with me in 2015 after hearing my EP, and gave me one of my first reviews. He wrote several musician biographies, reviews for music magazines and contributed to '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. More

"Give Me Your Horse"
As heard on BBC Jazz Nights, featuring hammond maestro Steve Lodder, the great jazz trumpeter Steve Waterman, the legendary Guy Pratt on bass and the unique Marc Parnell on drums. More
