Miguel Gorodi is a composer and trumpet player performing across a broad spectrum of jazz and improvised music.
Born in 1990 in Spain where he spent his formative years, Miguel also grew up in Saudi Arabia and Thailand before moving to Somerset in 2006 upon receiving a music scholarship from Wells Cathedral School.
Here Miguel furthered his classical music studies whilst travelling to London to take jazz lessons from trumpeters Martin Shaw and Nick Smart.
Miguel moved to London in 2008 to study jazz at The Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
He was picked up soon after by jazz singer Ian Shaw, and recorded on Shaw’s album ‘The Abbey Road Sessions’ in 2010, which featured jazz great Peter Ind.
Since graduating in 2012, Miguel has enjoyed a diverse performing career as a sideman whilst experimenting with his own projects, most notably the Miguel Gorodi Nonet which saw its debut performance in 2015 and performed in the 2016 EFG London Jazz Festival.
He currently plays in the Barry Green Sextet, SEED, the London City Big Band, The Engines Orchestra (project with Femi Temowo) and the Dixie Ticklers.
