Miguel Gorodi is a London based composer, teacher and trumpet player performing across a broad spectrum of jazz and improvised music. Miguel co-leads this band with alto saxophonist Sam Braysher. David Ingamells (drums) and Tom Farmer (double bass) complete the quartet. The band plays contrafacts (original melodies composed over the structure and harmony of jazz standards) by members of the band, as well as Lennie Tristano, Warne Marsh and Lee Konitz amongst others. Both Sam and Miguel have been influenced by the linear approach to improvising that these musicians are celebrated for. In this approach, the development of the improvised melodic line is given such importance that it often supersedes the harmonic structure of the song. The aim is to create more adventurous melodic lines with harmonic surprises. Born in Spain in 1990, Miguel moved to London in 2008 to study Jazz Trumpet at The Guildhall School of Music & Drama, graduating in 2012 with a first class honours degree and a Concert Recital Diploma, and stayed at Guildhall for a further two years as the Jazz department’s fellow Since moving to London, Miguel has become one of the city’s leading young jazz trumpet players. As of 2016, Miguel is a City Music Foundation artist.
