title: Homeward

His debut endeavour, Homeward, is a selection of six original songs and five 'jazzy' standards. The delicately arranged tunes are a variety of jazz, latin, soul and swing melodies, each laced with Glenn's majestic sax playing (soprano, alto, tenor) and vocals.

In 2005, this work received the Hamilton Music Awards nomination for Best R&B Album.
