Jim Rattigan - Digital Live
The restart of the Birmingham Jazz programme after Lockdown, is the fantastic, original Trio led by renowned French Horn Player Jim Rattigan. Recorded live during their performance on 18th September.
Jim brings his unique Trio to restart our programme after Lockdown. Jim Rattigan plays the French horn and before turning to jazz played in leading symphony orchestras. It takes a bit of getting used to, simply because its sound is so rarely heard in a jazz context. But Rattigan is also a composer with a canny approach when it comes to combining the sounds of various instruments. The distinctive voice of the horn soon becomes familiar as it weaves among the piano and violin and takes its turn among the soloists. The hard-to-achieve balance between scored ensemble and improvisation is perfect. They will be performing tracks from the Triplicity album.
Line Up: Jim Rattigan – French Horn, Liam Noble – Piano & Dom Ingham - Violin
