Diane's outstanding talents on both sax and flute have made her a much 'sought after' session musician in her native Goucestershire, providing tenor and baritone saxophones, flute and vocals to complement the keyboard vocal and trombone skills of Tony Sheppard in their duo Ain't Misbehavin.'
Diane plays Baritone sax for her local...energetic...dynamic, 'The Big Band'
She also plays tenor sax and sings with other professional musicians and teachers in the slick Glenn Miller styled Cosmic Big Band, and recently joined the saxophone quartet Saxophone Rangers.
Add to that being appointed musical director of Cheltenham based Metz Big Band. and you have a very busy and talented young musician.
Her first solo release for this label is an instrumental version of a film theme type of song, co-written with her friend and producer John Perkins, who also plays the haunting piano backing on this track.
You can also hear her on tracks by Sean Saye (also produced by John Perkins) and has recorded recent sessions for a new album by Howard Bragen.
