Paul Duffy, the Jäger Maestro’s trumpet player, has spent the last 11 months writing and recording solos for his first album, out this week, which already has plaudits around the world gushing over it.
The album, Only just begun, features Paul expertly performing, not only on trumpet but on a gargantuan 30 instruments and even singing! At one point , Paul himself plays every instrument in the brass band to accompany his own solo on trumpet.
The CD also contains cameo appearances from a wealth of top brass band names such as Black Dyke Band, LSO trombone virtuoso, Peter Moore, Richard Marshall and John Doyle.
Speaking about the CD, Paul said, “This has been so much fun to make. I’ve loved the challenge of doing something totally new and innovative.”
To have Paul Duffy in the Jäger Maestros is a huge privilege and this CD will no doubt rocket him into superstardom.

"The Jager Maestros are not to be missed! Whatever your mood or fancy, they'll pick you up and throw you about for a couple of hours, leaving you feeling high in the sky, or more likely dancing on tables! Great fun, great leader and a guaranteed good time!"
