Weds 20 April, 13:53: We’ve just heard from Gary that he is unwell and unable to travel today, so sadly tonight’s performance is off. Ticket holders will be contacted and offered a transfer to another night, or a refund.

Trumpet fans – come on Sunday 24 April to see Hugh Pascal’s quartet instead. More superb jazz tomorrow, 21 April with Trish Clowes’s My Iris Quartet – jazz album of this month in The Guardian!

Since 1999 Gary’s trumpet has featured on record and live with Super Furry Animals, Gruff Rhys, the Scissor Sisters, Raphael Saadiq, Kelis, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, Nadine Coyle, KT Tunstall and Noel Gallagher plus ongoing work with  Kasabian.

Tonight he leaves that ‘megaworld’ for our much more intimate scene, to play his own music with the best rhythm section in the West, The Blue Vanguard Club’s:
Craig Milverton (piano – Best Pianist, British Jazz Awards 2010);
Al Swainger (bass);
Coach York (drums).

“Joyous and uplifting music”

“Melodic…swinging…elevated by inventive, exciting soloing.” Listomania

“Gary’s trumpet playing has a beguiling touch, reminiscent of Chet Baker…” B24/7
