*Please note,  there is no support act. Matthew Halsall will perform two sets with an interval.*

Manchester based jazz musician, composer and producer Matthew Halsall performs new material from his latest album ‘Salute to the Sun’.  

A trumpeter whose unflashy, soulful playing radiates a thoughtful beauty and a composer and band-leader, Halsall, has created his own rich sound world. A sound that draws on the heritage of British jazz, the spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as world music and electronica influences, and even modern art and architecture, to create something uniquely his own. A music that is rooted in Northern England but draws on global inspirations.

‘Salute to the Sun’ is his first album as a leader since Into Forever (2015) and marks the debut of his new band. A hand-picked ensemble featuring some of Manchester’s finest young musicians. The album draws inspiration from themes and ideas that have inspired Halsall through the years (on albums such as Oneness, Fletcher Moss Park and When the World Was One) ideas of ecology, the environment and harmony with nature.

“Matthew Halsall asserts himself as a living legend amongst his spiritual jazz peers with this new album. Salute to the Sun tingles from start to finish, with the raised hairs from your goosebumps reaching out to connect with the warmth of Halsall’s oozing trumpet.” –★★★★★ Jazz Revelations
