Members of Jazz.Coop (including some from Strictly Smokin’ Big Band) attending the first Ushaw Jazz Festival in August 2016 were so bowled over by Bruce Adams’ performance that they straight away decided to book him for this special collaboration at the Globe.

Not only is Bruce one of the jazz scene’s most dramatic and stimulating performers, he is also a tremendously affable companion. A concert fronted by the Glaswegian is a happy and riotous event. Adams has been a regular jazz poll-winner, and with his spectacular range and power on trumpet he has been in demand as a lead, and jazz man for decades.

Bruce has often worked as a special guest soloist with both the Scottish Radio Orchestra and the BBC Big Band, so this gig with Strictly Smokin’ will be something else : big band + big Bruce… watch out!
