"Beautifil, spacious and spiritual music." All About Jazz
"A very special concert from acclaimed trumpeter, composer and bandleader Matthew Halsall and the remarkable Eastern-tinged, hard grooving Gondwana Orchestra. A great trumpeter, I'm a big fan of his music" Jamie Cullum BBC Radio 2
Matthew Halsall is one of the brightest stars on the UK jazz scene. With five albums already under his belt, his languid, soulful and deeply expressive playing has won him a legion of fans with critical praise from everyone from Jamie Cullum and Gilles Peterson to Jazz FM, MOJO Magazine, The Guardian, BBC Radio 6 Music and many more.His album "When The World Was One" was the iTunes jazz album of the year 2014. Always pushing boundaries. Halsall's music blends his love of the modal jazz of John and Alice Coltrane and Eastern Music with evocative, rain-soaked visions of his hometown Manchester. The result is a sublime spiritual jazz all of his own.
