The Gaz Hughes Trio plays a diverse range of music, drawing inspiration from Latin and New Orleans styles but wrapped up in the classic Piano trio sounds of the late 50's. "Old school Jazz for the 21st Century" – Dale Bassett, Sonata Lounge. "Incredible" Ginger Baker

"An extremely tasteful and swinging straight-ahead drummer, Hughes exhibits a no-nonsense approach to his playing" – Jazz Views 

Gaz first came to wider public attention as the original drummer in the Matthew Halsall Band and featured heavily on the early recordings of the Gondwana label. A particular highlight was recording the album "On The Go", which won The Best Jazz Album Of The Year, Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards, in 2012, and was nominated for Best Jazz Album MOBO Awards in 2011.

Gaz has performed with many UK and international artists including Scott Hamilton, Alan Barnes, Ian Shaw, Guy Barker, Liane Carroll, Digby Fairweather, Art Themen, Gilad Atzmon, Arun Ghosh, Matthew Halsall & Nat Birchall.

In 2019, Gaz was voted 5th Place in the British Jazz Awards, in 2020 Gaz released his first album as a band leader Plays Art Blakey which featured Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams, and Dean Masser and was supported by a huge UK tour and extensive radio play. In May 2022, Gaz released a trio album Beboperation. It was so well received that the trio went straight back into the studio and released Beboptical Illusion in 2023. The Gaz Hughes Trio has recently unveiled their latest opus, Nuclear Bebopalypse, which they have just finished touring nationwide.
"They rarely deliver anything less than excellence and today topped just about everything that had preceded it. I feel sad for the squares who weren't there" – Bebop Spoken Here
