About this event

We catch up on a unique collaboration – original themes by award-winning guitarist Martin Taylor, orchestrations by virtuoso jazz trumpeter Guy Barker. Taylor considers this nostalgic through-composed suite, heard for the first time in 2010, the highlight of his musical career and looks forward to performing it again. ‘Guy and I did our first gig together when we were 14 years old and have remained great friends ever since. It’s wonderful for us now to be able to collaborate together on this incredible project.’
