9781854249982: A Boy, a Journey, a Dream

'Bazil's direction of choirs is brilliant and unique. His music and his faith are to him the most important things that anyone can have. I know the feeling.' Sir George Martin, in his foreword Bazil's journey has taken him from the cotton fields of Montserrat to the FA Cup Final at Wembley. He came to England at nine, but family circumstances caused him to leave home in his teens. Bazil had already taught himself to play his brother's guitar, but when his pastor detected his gift, she laid hands on him and prayed. By the end of the evening he was also playing the piano, and within a fortnight he was performing in public. He had found his life's passion. Since then Bazil who to this day does not read music has worked with many popular artists, from Damon Albarn to Luther Vandross and Diana Ross. Bazil formed the London Community Gospel Choir in 1983. It was an immediate success, performing in prestigious settings and recording The Long and Winding Road with Paul McCartney. The Choir has recorded many albums and tours widely, appearing regularly at Glastonbury and other festivals. The talent, exuberance, intensity and overt spirituality of the Choir have made it unique.

Product Description:

Bazil's journey has taken him from the cotton fields of Montserrat to the 2009 FA Cup Final where LCGC performed the FA Cup hymn. He was born into poverty and a life without hope but found his future fulfilled through his calling to music. Bazil left the Caribbean and came to England at 9. A difficult relationship with his stepfather led to his leaving home at age 13 and moving in with his pastor who suggested he take up music. She prayed and laid hands on him and by the end of the evening he could play the piano. Within a fortnight he was performing in public. To this day, Bazil still can't read music and plays purely by instinct. He has worked with many of the greats - from Daman Albarn (Blur) to Beverly Knight - and there will be many commendations.
