From the recording Step Off And Fly
'Golden Animation' – this celebrates one of my favourite breeds of dog – the Golden Retriever! I wrote it after our beautiful Georgie, with us for 12 years, died of cancer. I felt such a sense of loss but had this tune going round in my head so started to jot it down. I'm sure composing this tune helped my grieving process.
Jazz-folk instrumental with guitar adding to our mix of flutes, saxes, piano, bass, drums and percussion.
