Matthew Hassall – spiritual jazz in Liverpool on 1st October!

Music is such a powerful conveyor of spiritual experience and a rare opportunity to listen to some spiritual jazz of the highest order from a northwest musician happens at the Capstone Theatre, Liverpool on Thursday 1st October at 7.30pm.

Matthew Halsall is an accomplished jazz trumpeter, composer and band leader who allows his spiritual presence, explored through Buddhism and Transcendental Meditation, to float through his music with great delight. He has a deep love and appreciation for the practice of meditation and this carries through his music to the audience with inspiring rhythm and melody and moments of great beauty.

This is the opening concert of a major UK tour, coinciding with the release of a new album ‘Into Forever’. The line-up features Matthew Halsall (trumpet), Jordan Smart (saxophone & flute), Rachel Gladwin (harp), Taz Modi (piano), Gavin Barras (bass), Luke Flowers (drums), plus string quartet and special guest vocalist Josephine Oniyama.

‘Kind Of Blue’ meets The Cinematic Orchestra…saturated in a life-affirming glow.
