So we are near the end of this years London Jazz Festival. All in all I think its been a great festival this year. I’ve been to loads of incredible gigs where they have all been fully packed and the vibe has just been amazing, I’ve also brought a few tasty new CDs including:
- SimonPurcell – Red Circle
- Chris Potter – The Sirens
- Helen Merrill – Brownie (Homage to Clifford Brown)
Me and saxophonist Duncan Eagles from “Silver Stage Jazz” have recorded and released a collaborative Jazz CD which we couldn’t be happier with and have had some really nice reviews about it. Read More
So Duncan how long have you been playing the Saxophone for?
I started when I was at secondary school at the age of 15. Which means I’ve been playing for around 15 years now.
How did you get into jazz?
Well I wanted to study music at A level but needed a secondary instrument to do so. My main instrument at the time was piano which id been playing since the age of 8 and my music teacher was a saxophonist so he said he would give me lessons. I joined the school big band as soon as I started my sax lessons and intently warmed to jazz music. Read More

So when did High Rollers first form?
We formed back in 2008.
How did the band start?
I was looking to start a function band but one that would only play my favourite music. I refused to only play the ‘wedding classics’ for the sake of it.
How did you get into Soul music?
You always hear soul music on the radio. It’s always there on whichever station you hear as it’s such universal music appealing to so many moods. I would have heard a lot of soul music without really knowing what the artists were. And once I’d got over my rock/indie phase aged 17/18 I clocked that so much of these radio songs that I truly loved were ‘soul music’. You scratch the surface of the genre and find there is an absolute iceberg underneath. Read More
