Artefact

A taster video for the new Matthew Halsall and the Gondwana Orchestra album, which will be launched with a full band gig at Band on the Wall on Sun 15th June.

Manchester based trumpeter, composer, record label boss, arranger and band-leader Matthew Halsall is one of UK music’s brightest talents. A gifted trumpeter with a beautiful, expressive tone, his heart-warming music draws on his love of the transcendental spiritual and modal jazz of Alice and John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as more contemporary dance music and electronica. His unique sound has won him fans from Gilles Peterson to MOJO Magazine, with the Independent On Sunday describing his music as “Rain-streaked spiritual jazz from Manchester” and Time Out Magazine hailing his sound as “'Kind Of Blue' meets The Cinematic Orchestra.
