Alan was a well respected presence around the studio for a few years. A top drawer session guy he added high value and colour to everything he played on. His truer identity may have been in singer-songwriting and this EP has four examples of his good work.
He was open to me doing arrangements and the first three songs here were the result. The final track, Go Easy, is a solo piece and a brilliant showing of Alan’s virtuosity. Like John Mayer, his guitar chops stand alone. Add compositional talent and performance and he is an artist of distinction.
