Fringe Jazz presents - PAUL DUNMALL TRIO
Percy Pursglove - Trumpet & Double Bass
The Trio sees Dunmall reunited with his close friend and perhaps longest musical collaborator, Bristol's drumming legend Tony Orrell. Paul and Tony played together in the late seventies in the superb Bristol band SPIRIT LEVEL and although Dunmall left Bristol in the early 80's the pair have continued to work together over the years. Bristol audiences will remember bands like THINKO with Mark Langford and Jerry Underwood and a brilliant session at The Albert with Paul Rogers and Simon Picard. The pair have made some excellent recordings together including 2007's DEEP SEE with Jim Barr on bass and the fascinating DVD Etchings.
Dunmall's musical partnership with phenomenally talented multi instrumentalist Percy Pursglove is more recent. Both musicians live in the Midlands and over the last 9 years the pair have developed a close working relationship with Pursglove featuring on both Double Bass and Trumpet across a spectrum of Dunmall's projects. Percy is the Trumpet player in Dunmall's Quintet, Sextet and Octet. If you were lucky enough to see the Paul Dunmall Quintet with Hamid Drake at the Colston Hall you would also have seen Percy join Paul on the Bagpipes.
The other link in this lineup is between Tony Orrell and Percy who are two parts of the brilliant PERDATO TRIO who have played at Fringe Jazz several times including two world class gigs with the remarkable American Alto saxophonist JOHN O'GALLAGHER earlier this year.
This is going to be a very special evening.
