Live Review: Paul Busby Big Band at The Brunswick

The Paul Busby Big Band

The Brunswick, Hove 10/11/13

It’s always great to see big bands performing, particularly ones with both the creative energy and talent of this ensemble.

Performing The East Sussex Jazz Suite, with all original music composed, arranged and introduced by Paul Busby, the ensemble featured some fantastic solo work from each section of the band, including Mark Bassey, Tarik Mecci, Rob Heasman, Paul Greenwood, Ian Price, Terry Pack, Jerry Dearden and Dave Trigwell. After the suite was performed, the audience were treated to some original arrangements and compositions by trombonist Mark Bassey.
