Al Gurr

Al has toured with artists such as Alfie Boe and Hayley Westenra and played for countless other artists in the classical and jazz fields. You may see him performing at a business presentation, a jazz gig, an orchestral concert, a corporate event, or on a rock gig but all will have a common denominator; musicians having a laugh!

Al is such a superb accompanist and soloist. He swings like crazy, and uses the timbres of the keyboard to perfectly match the tune.

“Message of iridescence” Live Album

Jazz Wise Review ★★★★☆

Corbett’s playing is rousing and fiercely expressive and his band are right on top of it.

Bryan Corbett's plaudits have often been for live performance and this very impressive two-disc set recorded at the Fleece Jazz in Colchester in April this year is testament to that. Corbett’s playing is rousing and fiercely expressive and his band are right on top of it, suggesting it was a memorable evening for those present. Aside from a love of the fuller, songlike tone and wittily extrovert approach to trumpet playing that draws from Louis Armstrong through to Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw, Corbett also shows he’s able to rise above the naffness of much contemporary jazz fusion with the rendition of tracks such as “Let’s Get Lost”, the song associated with Chet Baker.
