Judging by his resume, trumpeter and flugelhorn player Gary Alesbrook likes to mix things up. He’s played on live shows and studio sessions for Kasabian, Noel Gallagher, Scissor Sisters, Rag N Bone Man, Raphael Saadiq, Kelis and Tom Jones, as well as movie, TV and computer game soundtracks. Each has proved the perfect setting for his warm and lyrical sound and although Alesbrook has shown his dexterity as a player able to cross multiple genres, it is Jazz that drives his debut album.
His early years as a jazz artist were influenced by players such as Chet Baker, Clark Terry and Clifford Brown and it’s the intuitive use of swing that is very evident in his first work ‘Jazz in Movies’ . His use of melody and beautifully crafted phrasing hark back to an era who’s footprint has been left most notably in the world of movies.
