Friday 25 October:
Matthew Halsall Quintet

Manchester-based bandleader and trumpeter Matthew Halsall is one of the UK’s brightest talents. A gifted trumpeter with a beautiful, expressive tone, his music draws on his love of the transcendental, spiritual and modal jazz of Alice and John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as the glories of ’60s British jazz.

His albums have won him a legion of fans across the world and acclaim from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum, Radio 3′s Late Junction, and even BBC 6 Music. His latest album Fletcher Moss Park was described in The Independent as ‘one of the success stories of new British jazz.’

Matthew’s superlative band features some of Manchester’s finest musicians including pianist Taz Modi (Sub-Motion Orchestra), bassist Gavin Barras and drummer Luke Flowers (Cinematic Orchestra), along with the haunting harp of Rachael Gladwin.

“’Kind Of Blue’ meets The Cinematic Orchestra. With hypnotic grooves, and a meditative slow-build to his solos, Halsall’s music is saturated in a life-affirming glow”. Time Out

“A significant name on the UK jazz scene”. Sarah Ward, JazzFM
