Geoff Bull has had an illustrious career as one of the country’s leading Jazz trumpeters. He has toured the world extensively and is still in international demand to this day. Geoff has formed a band with five of the country’s most in demand young Jazz musicians: Justin Fermino, Ben Panucci and Sam Dobson, piano prodigy Harry Sutherland and trombone extraordinaire John Hibbard. This band is unprecedented in Australia for its dedication to the tradition of New Orleans Jazz and is a true living and breathing symbol of the passing on of knowledge from an old master to the next generation. This band represents not only the history of Jazz but also its future.
Geoff has performed and recorded around the world with the cream of the international jazz community including the great New Orleans Jazz revivalists George Lewis and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Other notable collaborations include Sammy Price (NYC), Sammy Rimington (UK), Captain John Handy (N.O.), Topsy Chapman (N.O.) Bull also met and talked music with the great Louis Armstrong on his only visit to Australia in 1958 with his “All-stars”. Geoff also lived between New Orleans and Sydney from 1973 to the mid 1980s.
