Julian Joseph introduces a set from Birmingham's Symphony Hall featuring Percy Pursglove on trumpet. Plus an interview with pianist Tim Richards.

Percy Pursglove ( known in the business as "The Glove" ) is in much demand for his highly regarded playing - Percy plays Trumpet on this set, and has appeared with the Elbow, Amy Winehouse, Jamie Cullum and the BBC Big Band, to a long list of stellar jazz names - John Hollenbeck, Hans Koller, Jim Mullen, The Ellington Orchestra at Birdland .

After graduating from Birmingham in 2004, 'The Glove' studied for a year in New York at the New School for Jazz, returning to our shores in 2006, lecturing in jazz at Birmingham Conservatoire for the past four years, to the great relief of Baristas throughout the UK.
