The Ipcress File

This a recording from 15 March 2017 Hackney Empire of me playing the theme from The Ipcress File with the BBC Radio Orchestra on Friday Night is Music Night. I am playing the original the instrument John Leach played for the film soundtrack and delighted the BBC were interested to use it, since it was a fine tribute to John, who helped me enormously in my career. I will forever be grateful to have known him and to have enjoyed his true friendship .
