For the newest edition of The Seltzer Salon, I talked to trumpeter, composer, and so much more, Matthew Halsall, about his new album, An Ever Changing View. It’s a stunning album. I’ve been an admirer of Halsall’s work for a while, but this album really swept me up in this lively, vivid world he creates with it. His compositions and trumpet playing are, of course, top notch, but the percussive elements of the album heighten its impact considerably. Add in the full package – custom fonts, cover tapestry, etc – it’s an incredible listening experience.
It was great to chat about it and hear him discuss those elements and how it came together to produce something so special.
