Bruce Adams’s earlier musical career was highly varied, from appearing on Opportunity Knocks to entertaining on cruise ships, playing guitar as well as trumpet, but for many a year he has concentrated on being one of the best trumpeters around. A ferocious player with impeccable technique, he can also display a surprising lyricism and melodic gift. Recently, Bruce has been working with Craig Milverton on a project celebrating the great cornet and piano players. After pandemic-related delays, this is now finished – you can hear it here on Bandcamp.

This is the next installment of the Blue Vanguard club’s monthly residency at Ashburton Arts Centre, featuring some of the UK’s finest jazz soloists with the South West’s premier rhythm section.
