Sean Gibbs is a London based trumpet player/composer, known for his work with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, Calum Gourlay Big Band, Young Pilgrims and many others. Tonight he will be performing material from his album ‘When Can I See You Again?’, released with Ubuntu Music. This has received wide critical acclaim, including a five star review in BBC Music Magazine. It has also been featured heavily on Jazz FM and Cerys Matthews’ show on BBC Radio 6.
The album is made up of original music of Sean’s, steeped in the jazz tradition, with a focus on lyrical melodies, hearty grooves and a deep connection to the blues.
London Jazz News – “When I spot trumpeter Sean Gibbs in a band my spirits lift; I know there will be spot on ensemble playing and expertly-turned, beautifully toned solos”
Herald Scotland – “Gibbs’ music has bags of personality and his soloing is full of ideas, now cool and reflective, now fast and assertive, now downright mischievous.”
