About the Event

The Rob Hall Trio (Chick Lyall on piano, Trevor Taylor on drums, Rob Hall  on sax and clarinet)

"..AN INTELLIGENT AND SENSITIVE IMPROVISER AND COMPOSER WHO HAS TACKLED ALL KINDS OF SETTINGS FROM ORCHESTRAS TO DUOS." THE GUARDIAN

"VIBRANT, OFTEN EVOCATIVE, HE HAS A GIFT FOR WRITING BRIGHT, SINUOUS LINES WITH RICH AND OFTEN INTRICATE HARMONIES."  THE SCOTSMAN   Saxophonist, clarinettist and composer Rob Hall has forged a highly individual path in music, consistently producing engaging, expressive and exploratory work that straddles genres. Tours, performances, recordings and broadcasts have taken him across the UK from Shetland to Penzance, and abroad to countries in four continents. Broadcasts, both recorded and live, have included BBC Radio2, BBC Radio3, JazzFM, BBC Scotland & BBC TV.   Rob's own CD releases are on the FMR contemporary music label numbering nine to date. His debut CD Open Up in 1997, featuring guitarist Jim Mullen, attracted excellent reviews, soon followed by Heading North with his London based touring quartet. 2005 saw the release of The Beaten Path with what has developed into a long and fruitful duo partnership with Scottish pianist and composer Chick Lyall spawning a further five CD recordings on FMR. An active composer, he has written music and undertaken commissions for large and small ensembles and solo works both in classical and jazz genres with many performances and recordings. These include works for choirs, chamber orchestra, jazz orchestra, and numerous compositions for small jazz ensembles.   Born in 1969 into a musical family he spent his early years in Kent where he took up recorder, piano and clarinet, and later in Essex where he added classical guitar. After a four year period playing clarinet with the Essex Youth Orchestra he went on to study classical music and performance at Manchester University and the Royal Northern College of Music jointly, gaining a degree and two diplomas. It was here that Rob's interests in contemporary  music and composition began to flourish, whilst studying clarinet with John Reynolds, composition with Geoff Poole and saxophone with Gary Cox. He continued his studies for one year as a scholarship student at Berklee College of Music in the USA, where he became a part-time tutor in music harmony before returning to the UK, to pursue a varied career in music education.
