He has regularly ‘woodsheded’ with Tony Roberts since 2008 developing musical ideas and techniques and regularly deputises for other bands. He currently regularly plays with The Daniel Pogorzelski Quartet, Rebecca Chambers’ New Tricks, Tony Roberts, Rachael Roberts & the Gatsby Gang and Duncan Anselm’s Blue Note project.

Jim Pullen has played trombone and bass professionally since the age of 19 and has been fortunate enough to have toured the world playing tours and gigs as far afield as Japan, the USA, Hong Kong as well as all over the European continent.
Jim at one point joined the RAF as a Musician, where the majority of his time was spent touring with “Squadronaires” Big Band, an experience that he has fond memories of.
Jim currently holds the bass chair with the Boulevard big band in the Bristol area and can regularly be seen in “middle earth”, or the “theatre pit” as theatrical societies like to call them on both bass and trombone…if forced. Jim is thrilled to be playing jazz again, this time with the Dan Pogorzelski Quartet.
