BROWN AND BLUE
Paul Higgs presents an evening of tunes by the legendary trumpet players, Clifford Brown and Blue Mitchell. Paul will illustrate both Clifford Brown’s and Blue Mitchell’s brilliant technique and inventiveness in their exploration of the Hard Bop and Bebop styles. Both had great soulful lyricism and a sense of melody.
Paul’s musical career has been prolific; he is sought after as a versatile composer and performer in the varied worlds of theatre, film, TV, gigs & concerts. Paul’s rich imagination allows him the luxury of inhabiting many places on the musical spectrum, and wherever he chooses that to be, he invariably creates the appropriate mood. His understanding of musical genres allied to his exceptional skills as a performer and presenter ensure that he is very much in demand and we are delighted to welcome him back that for an evening that is sure to enthral us all once more.
