Paul Taylor (trombone), Martin Jones (trumpet), Matt Smith (sax), Paul Sharpless (bass thrombone), Alan Drever-Smith (percussion), Jim Hingo, Michaela Higgins and John Robinson (voices).
Trombonist Paul Taylor has drawn inspiration from his Lancashire brass band roots to produce and outstanding score for John Robinsons’s epic poem Other Ranks.
A celebration of the common soldier, and a celebration of words and music, Other Ranks is based loosely on the experience of the Hull Pals of WW1. Reprised this November to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice.
