Album review by British jazz trumpeter Steve Waterman
For this CD Jade has brought together a group of musicians whose ensemble playing shows great energy, drive and swing but are also capable of producing delicacy and thoughtfulness when needed. They are also all strong soloists in their own right. I have worked with these musicians a number of times and am a huge admirer of their musicianship. It is great to hear them brought together for this wonderful CD.

The music, a collection of Jade’s favourite pieces from the standard jazz repertoire, offers a range of styles, tempos and moods. These are perfect settings to show each musicians improvisational abilities, highlighting how well they communicate and interact.

The opening title, Water Jug by Frank Wess sets the mood for the album with the rhythm section providing a dynamic swing propelled by the solid, driving bass playing of Kevin Sanders and the exciting drumming of Coach York. The combination of the fluent Neil Burns on guitar and melodic Matthew Tredget–Johns on piano provide a beautiful array of harmonic textures.

Following this, is a mix of the well known standards, Beautiful Love, given a light bossa nova treatment, an inspired version of I Can’t Get Started, played as a jazz waltz and the beautiful ballad, Everything Happens to Me, giving the band an opportunity to display their lighter, thoughtful side.

Also included is a selection of some classic compositions written by jazz musicians, from the opening Water Jug to McCoy Tyner’s Contemplation, Stolen Moments by Oliver Nelson, Hank Mobley’s This I Dig Of You, Midnight Voyage by Joey Calderazzo and Clifford Brown’s blues, Sandu.

Jade has a big, strong tenor sound with a beautiful sense of melody and swing that is ideally suited to the music presented here. She is also able to produce light, delicate playing when required, as in her beautiful solo on Everything Happens To Me.

A wonderful debut CD. Jade Gall is a musician to look out for and I’m sure we will be hearing much more from her and her band in the future.

SAXOPHONE – CLARINET – FLUTE – PIANO
MA LRSM DipABRSM BA(Hons)

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced player, I am a dedicated teacher who ensures that every lesson is tailored to suit the individual needs. I teach the Saxophone up to advanced level, Flute up to grade 8 and Clarinet and piano up to grade 5. When my pupils have reached a point where they feel that they would like to take an exam, I like to use ABRSM for classical exams and Trinity for jazz exams. I teach both privately and also at Taunton Preparatory School and I hold a current CRB certificate.

It is vital that you have your own instrument to learn on as I unfortunately do not have the facility to loan instruments out, however sax.co.uk and John Packers have a great loan scheme. I am very happy to advise and answer any instrumental purchase or loan questions that you might have. If you would like to enquire about lessons, then please fill out the form below.

Biography

XPR01130-EditJade started her love for music off at a young age as a flautist before venturing on to the tenor saxophone at age 13. She went on to study at Dartington College of Arts as an undergraduate where she gained a BA(hons) in Music (professional practice). During her time at Dartington, she continued her jazz studies privately with jazz saxophonist Martin Dale, who was the first person to introduce her to the wonderful world of jazz improvisation. She later went on to study the saxophone at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where she studied under classical saxophonists Lara James and Gerard McChrystal. She graduated as a Master of Arts in music performance in 2013.

Jade is a member of acclaimed ska band The Simmertones, who regularly perform across the country to sell out crowds, including many prestigious events such as the London International Ska Festival and Boomtown Fair. You can hear Jade playing flute on their new single Run For Your Life which is available for download now and has already received air play on BBC Radio 2.

Jade regularly performs on the South West scene and across the country, performing as a guest artist or with her Quintet. She is also privileged to perform in various horn sections with many local bands and across the country, including London based touring companies, The Magic of Motown Show and the Soul Legends Show.

Jade is also a keen educator, she is a private tutor and clarinet and saxophone tutor at Taunton Preparatory School.
