Ace trumpeter Paul Higgs is renowned as one of the UK's leading players and composers. In this show Paul and his band take you a delightful musical tour of the history of jazz, playing hits by the legendary greats- Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker and Miles Davis, through the styles of New Orleans, swing and be-bop, cool jazz, modal and Latin. As well as an intimate and outstanding performance, Paul’s entertaining commentary enhances these classics, creating a truly memorable show.
With Chris Ingham - piano, George Double - drums, Marianne Windham - bass
"Paul Higgs displays a gorgeous tone,unflagging inspiration, stylistic cognisance at its most perceptive and enviably faultless chops to boot!."
