Hugh Pascall is an award-winning trumpet player and composer. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London and at the Paris Conservatoire and has since developed a worldwide recording and performance career.
With far-reaching influences from bebop to electronica, his sound is characterised by bold creativity of harmony and language, a rich tone and a melodic line. Exploring the music of post-bop inspirations such as Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw and Tom Harrell, alongside his own compositions and interpretations of tunes in the classic jazz tradition, Hugh brings an energetic quartet of star musicians from the UK jazz scene to Peggy’s each month, continuing his unique residency at the club, established in December 2018.
His eclectic career has included work with a huge variety of artists. He is currently performing with New York’s The Last Poets, has recently collaborated with Max Cooper and recorded for Jodie Abacus and Easy Life. He’s featured as a soloist on two albums for The Birmingham Jazz Orchestra, recorded and toured with Dave Ferris’ 2018 septet album Alphabets and has featured in the trumpet section of the E17 Large Ensemble for the last 7 years, while regularly performing at festivals and venues across the country as a sideman for numerous projects.
