Released in November 2020, Matthew’s Halsall’s Salute to the Sun was the trumpeter’s first album since 2015’s Into Forever and marked the debut of his new band. A hand-picked ensemble featuring some of Manchester’s finest young musicians.

The album drew its energy from the band’s weekly sessions and was inspired by Halsall’s love of nature. Lush and spiritual it received universal praise, but Halsall and his band were frustrated that they were unable to share their beautiful new sound live with an audience so in January 2021 they broadcast a very special concert film in aid of the charity Mind, reaching a global audience in the thousands

. It was a special moment for the band and now Halsall is set to release Salute to the Sun: Live from Hallé St Peter’s
