Ace jazz trumpeter Paul Higgs plays with a sublime tone and breathtaking technique. He has performed with Johnny Dankworth, Lulu, Tony Hatch, John Williams, Peggy Lee and Nancy Wilson. He has also performed in major concert venues around the world.
Paul is renowned for his magical sound and exceptional skill. His great sensitivity, high energy and his own skill as a composer make him a superb proponent of Miles Davis's music. This year is the 60th anniversary of Miles’s best-selling album ‘Kind of Blue’, and playing with Paul in this celebration of Miles are the outstanding trio Chris Ingham (piano), George Double (drums), and Jerome Davies (bass).
Miles Davis, the most revered jazz trumpeter of all time, was at the forefront of several major innovations in jazz from the mid '40s to the early '90s - bebop, cool, hard bop, modal, jazz funk and jazz fusion. Paul plays well-known favourites from these styles as well as some less familiar gems.
The Stables will be opening its doors from 11am, so before each concert you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a hot bacon roll, along with a full bar and snack bar service – the Sunday papers will be available too!
