Manchester based, DJ, bandleader and trumpeter Matthew Halsall is one of the UK’s brightest talents.A gifted trumpeter with a beautiful, expressive tone, his music draws on his love of the transcendental, spiritual and modal jazz of Alice and John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as the glories of ‘60s British jazz.

His albums ‘Sending My Love’, ‘Colour Yes’, 'On The Go', 'Fletcher Moss Park' and 'When The World Was One' released on his own Gondwana label have won him a legion of fans across the world and acclaim from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum and Radio 3’s Late Junction, MOJO, BBC Music Magazine and even BBC 6 Music.
