After more than 10 years, Mathew's 2nd album finally gets released on vinyl!
Manchester based trumpeter Matthew Halsall is fast carving out a reputation as one of the UKís brightest talents. A sublimely gifted trumpeter with a beautiful, expressive tone, his debut album ĎSending My Loveí caught the ear of Gilles Peterson (one of the influential DJs albums of the year for 2008), Stuart Maconie (BBC 6 Music), Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) and Mike Chadwick (Jazz FM) amongst others as well as picking up rave reviews in industry bible Jazzwise and Mojo magazine. The albumís gentle power also caught the ear of Nithin Sawhney leading to a weeklong collaboration earlier this year.

Drawing on his love of the transcendental spiritual and modal jazz of Alice and John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as the glories of Ď60s British jazz, Halsallís music is thoughtful, elegiac and explorative. But while imbued with a sense of history, the young trumpeter and DJ nevertheless brings a contemporary bounce to his beautiful music and his regular sessions at Matt & Phreds and recent concerts at the Luminaire and Ronnie Scottís in London (alongside Keith Tippet and Nostalgia 77) are notable for attracting a cool, youthful crowd alongside the more traditional jazzers. Indeed Halsallís music has a timeless quality that means there is nothing dated about his finely-tuned explorations of the music he loves and itís this love of the music that gives his music such a special hue.
