Jazz@Jubilee presents... A Brief History of Jazz (featuring the Paul Higgs Quartet)

A whirlwind tour of 130 years of jazz
A delightful musical tour of jazz’s history with music from legends Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker and Miles Davis with stylistic nods to New Orleans, swing, bebop, cool jazz, modal and Latin. Trumpeter Paul Higgs is widely recognised as one of the UK’s best jazz trumpeters. A versatile and varied career has seen him in the post of Musical Director at the National Theatre and the RSC, and he has performed with artists and orchestras from the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra to Johnny Dankworth, Lulu, Tony Hatch, John Williams, and Nancy Wilson.  With Jim Watson (piano), Jeremy Brown (bass) and George Double (drums).
