Matthew Halsall is a trumpeter whose unflashy, soulful playing radiates a thoughtful beauty and a composer and band-leader. Halsall has created his own rich sound world 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, to create something uniquely his own. 

Playing with his newly hand-picked ensemble of Manchester’s finest young musicians, Halsall performs music from his latest album Salute To The Sun, his first since 2015, which draws on such sources of inspiration as ecology and harmony with nature that have continued to inspire Halsall through the years. Time Out describes his work as “Kind Of Blue’ meets Cinematic Orchestra”, while Jazz Revalations declares that Salute to the Sun “tingles from start to finish”.

Matthew Halsall trumpet, Matt Cliffe saxophone & flute, Maddie Herbert harp, Liviu Gheorghe piano, Gavin Barras bass, Alan Taylor drums and Jack McCarthy drums.
