recorded work

Bill has recorded six albums to date, including a new album for the record label Instinctive Travels called "Around The World" (see the CD page). He has also co-written and played on the newest Dale Barlow record for the same label entitled "Hopscotch". In between all of his own recordings Bill plays on other people's albums....

He has arranged, produced and played on many albums (piano and bass) from gospel, jazz, country, R&B, pop and beyond. The latest stand out recording is the track “Paper Aeroplanes” from Kasey Chambers’ new album, “Wayward Angel”.

Other notable recordings are: "De-Classified" by Leon Gaer and Tom Ferris; “Accentuate The Positive” with Mark Rivett & Emma Pask: “New Shadow” by Felicity, “The Way The World Is” by Tamara Stewart, and "Deeper & Deeper" by Geoff Bullock (with the Prague Symphony Orchestra); “Little Victories” and “Wild At Heart” by Beccy Cole; Most recently "Jazz" albums "Beautifully Mad" by Tony King and Kris Ralph (Makin' Whoopee), "Face the Music" by Anthony Warlow; “Unspoken” by Adrian Cunningham, and "Bright Window" by Rachel Gaudry.

Bill is responsible for many television commercials as well as recording for Australian TV dramas such as Wildside for the ABC, Young Lions on Channel 9, and live tv appearances. He has also recorded music for documentaries and film scores including “The Night They called It A Day”, “A Man’s Gotta Do...” and many others.

Bill has played with international artists such as the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, Bobby Shew, William Gallison, Kitty Margolis, Rob McConnell (Boss Brass), the Velotti Batiste Jazz Ensemble (Italy), Andre Crouch, and Doug Cameron, among others.

He has performed with many diverse Australian popular artists such as Tina Arena, Glen Shorrock, Barry Leef, Marcia Hines, Daryl Braithwaite, James Reyne, Ross Wilson, James Morrison, Gina Jeffreys, Vanessa Amorosi, Jon Stevens, Jenny Morris, Sharon O'Neill, Mark Williams, Erana Clark, Steve Clisby, Louise Perryman and Emma Pask to name but a few.

He has done supports for Dionne Warwick, Thelma Houston, Julio Iglesias, and US saxophone player Steve Lacy.

He has played with Radio NHK Symphony Orchestra (Tokyo), The Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and recorded with the Prague Symphony Orchestra.

Recent trips to Japan with The Jeff Duff Orchestra has seen Bill share more of his talents with yet again another audience. Travelling with just the core members of The Orchestra (Jeff Duff - vocals and Jane Rosenson, harpist with Opera Australia), Bill rehearsed and conducted the newer members through his string arrangements of both originals and covers which made for some interesting linguistic gymnastics. During dinner that night Bill accidentally let a whole restaurant know (with his chopsticks placement) that his whole family had passed away... A fine cultural experience.

Most recently Bill has been playing with the Elizabeth Carthew Group and this has been a very rewarding musical experience. He's also playing with Steve Clisby's HEAD BAND, and Bill and Steve will be going to Europe and the US for a stint of gigs in September 2004.
