Paul Booth has curated a new project, ‘Secret Sessions’, which is an outlet for new music that is created, played and ultimately recorded by grouping like-minded artists and friends together.
It works like this… Paul carefully selects highly talented musicians who turn up to the recording studio, only knowing the instrumentation of the music but not knowing who they will be playing with. The result is a dynamic cocktail of spontaneous, exciting and highly rewarding music.
‘Hoop’ is the second creation in the ‘Secret Sessions’ series, recorded in 2019 with compositions by Tom Walsh, Nichol Thomson, Chris Allard and Paul Booth.
Swansea International Jazz Festival is presented by Swansea Council in association with Swansea Jazz Club.
