Musician Profile

Band Info

Paula Jackman – clarinet and saxes (soprano, alto, C melody and tenor). Paula, Essex born and bred, started playing classical clarinet aged nine. She heard Roger Marks’ Armada Jazz Band whilst on holiday in Devon, aged 14, before ‘digging out’ her Dad’s jazz records for further inspiration. She joined Cambridge based, Amadeus Boldwicket’s Red Hot Peppers, in the mid-nineties, when she was 25. She played with the band for 13 years whilst also running her own band, Paula Jackman’s Jazzmen, and playing with other jazzers from London and East Anglia. Paula’s influences range from Barney Bigard to George Lewis, to Sidney Bechet, to Ben Webster.
Her current band, Paula Jackman’s Jazz Masters, is named as a tribute to Paula’s late husband, Brian Masters, one of Britain’s finest banjoists.
