BRIAN CORBETT QUARTET, Friday 7th August
LINEUP: Bryan Corbet (Trumpet, Flugel Horn), Al Gurr (Piano, Bass), Ben Markland (Bass), Neill Bullock (Drums)
Bryan Corbett is not only a distinguished performer of the jazz mainstream repertoire, but also an artist who pushes the boundaries, writing and performing original works with his hand-picked lineups. Bryan has featured as a soloist and in horn sections on numerous recordings; he has also been the soloist with the ‘BBC Concert Orchestra’ and Big Band Małopolski in Krakow, Poland. A past winner of the ‘Jerwood Rising Star’ accolade at Cheltenham International Festival, and the Quartet previously won the poll winner prize at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall. In 2017, Corbett was the featured artist and curator of Birmingham Jazz Legends Festival.
This BJF2020 concert-set with Ben Markland, Al Gurr and Neil Bullock creates a thrilling and super-cool atmosphere, with crisp expositions of three classic jazz numbers, made especially for the Festival. Recorded remotely in UK.
