In this show jazz trumpet ace Paul Higgs presents a programme of cult TV jazz themes, including Spider-Man, Star Trek, Pink Panther and Doctor Who. Some of the world’s best jazz composers were commissioned to write these memorable and much loved themes: Neal Hefti, Henry Mancini, Johnny Dankworth, Alexander Courage, and Ron Grainer. Paul and his band will be playing these all-time cult classics, with some narrative background from Paul.

Paul was a Musical Director at the National Theatre and the RSC, and has performed with Sir Peter Maxwell Davis, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Johnny Dankworth, Lulu, Tony Hatch, John Williams, and Nancy Wilson. He has also performed in major concert venues around the world such as the Royal Festival Hall, Berlin Concert Hall, Royal Albert Hall, and Ronnie Scott’s.

Paul is renowned for his magical sound and exceptional skill. His great sensitivity, high energy and his own skill as a composer make him a joy to hear.
