The monthly Tea Break is a series of short, fun items in What's New Magazine that also gives jazz musicians an opportunity to update us with what they are doing. Here are the Tea Breaks they (and I) have taken since 2015.

Brian Corbett (Trumpet) - October 2015

Bryan Corbett


Hi Bryan, tea or coffee?

Coffee please.


Hob Nob, Bourbon, Garibaldi or digestive biscuit?

Hob Nob


Chet Baker, Clifford Brown or Roy Eldridge?

As a player Clifford Brown had everything but Chet always does it. 'She Was Too Good For Me' is still my favorite album. Roy Eldridge is a master and someone I need to listen to more.


Milk and sugar?

Just milk, sugar is a killer. 


What gigs have you played recently?

Pershore Jazz Festival (Quartet); Foley Arms Hotel, Malvern (Trio); Tony Christie (Residency Blackpool North Pier); Numerous Muscle Shoals Hornsrecording sessions; RLEBB (Res Lemons Electric Blues Band) (30 years reunion) Storbridge Town Hall.


What have you got coming up in  October?

Various Tony Christie theatre dates; Some corporate gigs and a Trio gig at Corks Club in Birmingham (1st October), and my new Quartet album is out.


Who else have you heard recently that we should listen out for?

 Kneedbody, Muscle Shoals Horns, Alex Sipiagin

Bryan Corbett's new Quartet album is available through Bryan's website at Bryan says: 'It is a live recording from 'Fleece Jazz' earlier this year. I think it captures the quartet - myself, Al Gurr, Neil Bullock and Ben Markland very well and has some really magical moments. Its best part of 10 years since the Quartet put out a recording and people always ask for what they just heard. So here it is. It's a double CD as there is too much for a single and I did not want to split up the recording.'
