Winner of the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers and a BBC Jazz Award, Chris Batchelor is renowned for his melodic and warmly lyrical playing. He was a founding member of Loose Tubes and has played with many leading international stars, such as Hermeto Pascoal, Michael Brecker, Uri Caine and John Taylor. He leads the popular band Pigfoot, dedicated to re-inventing well known repertoire from all styles. He also co-leads the groups Total Vibration (with Laura Jurd) and Zone-B, in which he continues his long and fruitful association with altoist Steve Buckley.
“A fine trumpeter who intriguingly blends Miles Davis’s shrewd pacing and evocative long-note sounds with something of Harry Beckett's bubbly phrasing.”
