Bruce Adams: One Foot In The Gutter


Catalogue number BEARCD36

Bruce Adams is a masterly trumpet player in the grand manner. You don’t need to attend a course of lectures in order to know what he’s on about  because he speaks a musical language which everybody understands and speaks it with uncommone elegance and vigour.

I am convinced that, over the years, more people positively enjoy this sort of music than that of the young geniuses who arrive fortnightly, each to a well-orchestrated fanfare. But enjoyment is something that happens inside you. It isn’t visible like a fashion accessory.

Dave Gelly
