Fresh from a guest appearance on Mr Scruff’s new long player Friendly Bacteria, Matthew Halsall is prepping the release of new album When The World Was One on 16th June. Released on his own Gondwana Records label and with ongoing and dedicated support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Matthew continues to mature into one of the country’s finest and most well respected jazz musicians.
This date will see him accompanied by the Gondwana Orchestra, consisting of Matt on trumpet, Jordan Smart on saxophones, Lisa Mallett on flute, Rachel Gladwin on harp, Taz Modi on keys, Gavin Barras on double bass and Luke Flowers on drums.
The night before will see the mighty Go Go Penguin take to the stage, with the newest Gondwana signing Mammal Hands in support.
Buy tickets for both events at the Band on the Wall at their website on the below links.
