In this show, trumpeter Paul Higgs presents a musical tour of the history of jazz, playing hits by the legendary greats - Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, and Miles Davis, among others. He takes you from the early styles of New Orleans, swing and bebop, through to cool jazz, modal and Latin.

"Paul Higgs displays a gorgeous tone, unflagging inspiration, stylistic cognisance at its most perceptive and enviable faultless chops to boot" - Digby Fairweather: BBC Presenter (Radio 2 and 3) and jazz trumpeter
