Sorry But Gordon Haskell did not write any songs for that Band. It was a  time in his life Which he would Like to Brush Over but he couldn't. If he had more input then that band would have meant more to him then just 9 months of Unpleasantness and Overpowering by it's founder. 


His Style is Jazz, Blues and Country with some on  Rock and Roll Jazz or Rhythm and Blues .

He is Most Remember for his Hit 'How Wonderful You are' from 2001. It is The BBC RADIO 2 most requested song and It got to number 2 in the Christmas Charts . The Album 'Harry's Bar' (2002)  went to Number 2 in UK album Charts too and Went in the charts in Many European countries of which Poland is where he played the most.  There He had 'How Wonderful You Are' at 1 with 2 other top 40 Hits.  3 Other Albums went into the Top 40 . 

He released his Latest Album in 2020 ' The Cat Whose Got The Cream ' 


Rest In Peace Gordon Haskell
