Terry Pack’s Trees – An Unfeasibly Large Ensemble
Led by bassist Terry Pack, this is one of the most exciting jazz big bands to come out of the south coast. Performing original charts and great arrangements of popular tunes.
Trees is the brainchild of Brighton based bassist and composer Terry Pack.
With a career spanning more than four decades and including spells with The Enid, Cozy Powell, Graham Bonnet and Steve Hackett to name but a few, Terry has in recent years turned his focus onto jazz and improvised music. His recent musical collaborations read like a ‘who’s who’ of the British jazz scene (Claire Martin, The Cloggz, Ben Castle, Bobby Wellins, Nigel Price, Martin France).
An ‘unfeasibly large ensemble’ performing an eclectic mix of contemporary and groove-based compositions, Trees is now an inclusive and community based group comprising up to 40 musicians at any time and augmented by guest professional musicians keen to take part in one of the most exciting new musical projects in and around Brighton.
Imaginative, fresh arrangements of classic tunes fuse seamlessly with innovative compositions by the bandleader and band members alike.
Trees released their debut album ‘Heart Of Oak’ in June 2017 and is available via the bands Bandcamp page here.
Part of the South Coast Jazz Festival 2017.
