Toucan Tango Music, 2013, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Pop+Jazz
O’s Notes: Paul Higgs plays trumpet and piano. He performs in a quintet with a strong team. Pavane is a collection of eleven compositions arranged and composed by Higgs. The music has a chamber feel when cellist Helen Yousaf uses a bow. Otherwise the program is fresh contemporary jazz in varied tempos. We enjoyed the peaceful passion of “A Simple Truth” and “Parisienne Affair”; the drama of “Shadows and Desire”; and the vibrant feel of “Clocks”.
