In January 2014, Tommy had the honour of being engaged to transcribe and adapt the classic album 'Jarreau', for Al Jarreau's shows at Ronnie Scott's featuring an all-star 12 piece band, to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary.

Around the same time, he recorded his own album project of standards featuring a 55 piece orchestra, big band and vocalists. The album, 'In Love Again', attempts to capture the spirit of some of Tommy's arranging heroes. Please visit the Music section to listen to excerpts from the record.
