Jazz composer/arranger working in the UK.
Between 2000-2004 I studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire with the
great Mike Gibbs. Since 2004 I have been lucky enough to have some of
the UK's finest musicians play my music. The Ed Puddick Big Band is one
of the most talked about bands in the country and they have played at
many of the best jazz venues in London. I have been commissioned to
write for many groups and my music has been performed all over the UK.
I'm always looking for new projects so please get in touch with any
suggestions of proposals.
My Jazz Story
Published on: 2016-05-04
I was first exposed to jazz in my teens when I attended the Essex Youth Jazz Orchestra directed by Martin Hathaway. I met Elvin Jones whilst at Birmingham Conservatoire in 2003. The best show I ever attended was John Surman at Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2002. The first jazz record I bought was The Atomic Mr Basie.
