Bruce Adams’ earlier musical career was highly varied, from appearing on Opportunity Knocks to entertaining on cruise ships, playing guitar as well as trumpet, but for many a year he has concentrated on being one of the best trumpeters around. A ferocious player with impeccable technique, he can also display a surprising lyricism and melodic gift. A regular at Birmingham, he has featured on several live recordings from the festival, with the likes of Django’s Castle and the great Kenny Baker. Most recently, Bruce has been working with Craig Milverton on a project celebrating the great cornet and piano players. After delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the album should be complete in August.
