‘some things presents: Ben Higham / Paul Jolly’

Some Things (Chris Dowding and Ben Higham) is an ‘arresting trumpet duo’ from Norwich hosting a short residency at the Vortex Downstairs during the London Jazz festival. When not playing with Rude 2.0, Natural Causes, The Brass Monkeys, Monk Inc. and Arthur amongst others, Chris and Ben get together to explore a mixture of original material and unusual standards as the basis for improvisations, building on the textures created by tight unison patterns and interlocking solos.
This residency provides an opportunity for Dowding and Higham to engage in impromptu performances with two of their of their favourite saxophonists. Tonight some things will set the scene with a set followed by a spontaneous collaboration between improviser Paul Jolly (The People Band, 33 Jazz Records) and Ben Higham .
