Hugh Pascall tours the UK in April, May and June, presenting new music from his debut album Borderlands with a quartet of star musicians from the UK scene.
Influenced by musicians like Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Tom Harrell, Coltrane and Miles, Hugh’s music is a lyrical, vibrant and modern approach to post-bop jazz. It’s straight-ahead jazz with melody, where swinging, modal explorations are complimented by beautiful, atmospheric and expressive ballads rich in harmony and character.
Hugh also brings interpretations of choice standards and tunes in the classic jazz tradition, weaving these into the set alongside music from the new album and other brand new compositions.
An award-winning trumpeter and composer, Hugh studied jazz at the Royal Academy of Music and at the Paris Conservatoire and has since developed a highly respected career as a soloist. Recent projects include playing with such luminaries as The Last Poets, with UK legend Tony Kofi’s Inside Straight and rising star guitarist Aidan Pope’s new Octet. His eclectic career has included performances and recordings with a huge variety of artists, regularly performing at festivals and venues across the country and throughout Europe as a sideman. Forthcoming projects include a recording with guitarist Peter Bernstein as a member of the acclaimed David Ferris Septet. Borderlands is his much anticipated first album as Bandleader.
