Never miss another 'Matthew Halsall Sextet' show
This event takes place at Band On The Wall, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Manchester based bandleader, trumpeter and DJ Matthew Halsall is one of the UK's brightest talents. A gifted trumpeter with a beautiful, expressive tone, his music draws on his love of the transcendental, spiritual and modal jazz of Alice and John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as the glories of '60s British jazz
Matthew Halsall Sextet tour dates
GoGo Penguin have managed to create a sound that is wholly their own - anthemic melodies from pianist Chris Illingworth hypnotise over rolling, skittering beats from drummer Rob Turner, all propelled forward by pulsing acoustic bass lines from Nick Blacka.
Their instrumentation might be the archetypal piano trio but while the melodic, harmonic and structural ideas are influenced by both classical and jazz, the rhythms are drawn from across the rich history of the UK rave scene. It’s this meeting of opposites that makes their unique acoustic-electronica sound so exciting, drawing on a heady brew of influences from Brian Eno, Debussy and John Cage to Squarepusher, Aphex Twin and Massive Attack, with a dose of the grey, rain-streaked urbanity of Manchester thrown into the mix.
