Live at the Forge | Gary Alesbrook Quintet Feat. Phil King

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 creative appetite.
