This joy-filled class offers the opportunity for parents to sing, dance and shake along to songs from around the world and original tunes.
Paul Dunmall is recognised as one of Europe’s finest improvisers on tenor and soprano saxophones, clarinet and pipes, but this special concert to mark Paul’s 60th birthday year profiles his formidable talent as a composer.
Tonight, hear two sets, both featuring the next generation of players with whom Paul has been working. The first set will present The Realisation Trio, an improvising trio with Paul, Nick Jurd on bass and Jim Bashford on drums.
The second set focuses on both composition and improvisation featuring a sextet with Percy Pursglove on trumpet, Paul on his various instruments, Mike Fletcher on alto sax, Mike Hurley on piano, Chris Mapp on bass and Mark Sanders on drums.
"An imperious charisma that’s immediately amplified when he starts to play." The Jazzmann
