About Matthew Halsall
Matthew Halsall performs music from his latest album, Salute to the Sun, with his new band.
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.
