Jazz Steps and Inspire are thrilled to be back with entertaining and stimulating jazz gigs brought to you at local libraries. We kick things off this season with a quartet led by acclaimed Nottingham-based trumpet player and composer Hugh Pascall.
Their jazz is melodic and vibrant, with swinging modal explorations complimented by beautiful expressive ballads, rich in harmony and character. It’s a modern, fresh approach to post-bop jazz, influenced by the music from the likes of jazz greats Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson and Wayne Shorter,
Hugh’s quartet features top musicians from the UK jazz scene: Liam Dunachie on keys, Oli Hayhurst on bass and Jay Davis on drums.
