Sat 1 Oct – Paul Higgs & Band – Shades of Miles

Tickets £12.50 Buy Here

Paul Higgs and his band present an evening of tunes by trumpet legend Miles Davis. At the forefront of many jazz innovations from the 20th century. Miles Davis was also famous for his haunting lyrical sound. Paul’s subtle and sensitive style, combined with an exquisite tone and virtuoso skill are perfectly matched to Miles’ work. Paul is simply outstanding.

Bebop Spoken Here – Lance Liddle

Paul Higgs is a new name to me although he has such jazz luminaries as Digby Fairweather and Dave Gelly, among others, in his corner.
Musical Director and Composer at the National Theatre and the RSC for 24 years Higgs also worked with notable names such as Dankworths John and Cleo, Peggy Lee, Al Martino, Buddy Greco, Shorty Rogers and Rosemary Clooney (cited as George Clooney’s aunt. I always think of George Clooney as Rosie’s nephew!).
An impressive pedigree built upon his acceptance by NYJO at age 14. Bill Ashton, then MD of NYJO, referred to him as “One of the most gifted composers and arrangers ever to have been involved with NYJO” – praise indeed.
