Since signing to WMR Universal Records in 1987, Andy has toured extensively around the world; his 1989-90 dates took him through 17 countries to the likes of The Olympia (Paris), Jazz in Marciac (France), The Monterey Jazz Festival (California), The Jurasum Festival (South Korea), the Blue Notes in Tokyo and New York, Kampnagel (Hamburg) and Ronnie Scott’s (London). The music resonates with swing, groove and funk overtones; "my roots remain in jazz but I like adding all kinds of different flavours" said Andy.
