Halsall is one of the bright stars on the jazz scene, bringing a fresh voice that's also reminiscent of jazz's past. A lovely tune that sees him shifting away from classic Miles Davis modal sound and adopting some of the Alice Coltrane mysticism from her Impulse recordings.
About the track
Manchester based, DJ, 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.
This track is from Halsall's new release Fletcher Moss Park, featuring: Matthew Halsall (trumpet), Nat Birchall (sax), Rachael Gladwin (harp), Adam Fairhall, Taz Modi (piano), Gavin Barras (bass), Gaz Hughes, and Luke Flowers (drums).
