Ace trumpeter Paul Higgs plays with a sublime tone and breathtaking technique. He has performed with Johnny Dankworth, Lulu, Tony Hatch, John Williams, Peggy Lee and Nancy Wilson. He has also performed in major concert venues around the world, and receives standing ovations on a regular basis.
Paul is renowned for his magical sound and exceptional skill. His great sensitivity, high energy and his own skill as a composer make him a superb proponent of Miles Davis’s music.
Miles Davis, the most revered jazz trumpeter of all time, was at the forefront of several major innovations in jazz from the mid ’40s to the early ’90s – bebop, cool, hard bop, modal, jazz funk and jazz fusion. Paul plays well-known favourites from these styles as well as some less familiar gems.
“I’ve never been sure if I’m a bigger fan of Paul’s trumpet playing or his marvellous composing talents as they’re both monumental! Paul Higgs is a world-class composer and trumpet player.” Digby Fairweather: BBC presenter (Radio 2 and 3), and jazz trumpeter
“Paul is a classy emotive musician who can hold an audience in the palm of his hand whatever style he happens to be playing in. His trumpet playing is hauntingly beautiful.” Val O’Doherty, proprietor of Mill Hill Jazz Club
“He is a superb musician who is extremely popular with artistes and the public alike. As well as being an exceptional trumpet player he is also a lovely man!” Ann Taylor, proprietor of Southend Jazz Club
“Thanks for a wonderful gig. Paul, we much appreciate you coming down from London to mesmerise our audience, again, with your magic trumpet playing.” Elmer, Colchester Jazz Club
