Live streamed from Wigmore Hall, London

Trish Clowes

Saxophonist and composer Trish Clowes has been described as “an improviser to be reckoned with” (Downbeat Magazine) and “one of the most agile and original jugglers of improv and adventurous composition to have appeared in the UK in recent times” (John Fordham, The Guardian). Here she performs with fellow band member, pianist Ross Stanley in a program of new and specially arranged music.

Her performances (either with her band or as a soloist) include the Barbican, Toronto Jazz Festival, Rochester International Jazz Festival, Royal Festival Hall, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Wigmore Hall, Celtic Connections (with BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra), Women in (e)motion Festival (Germany), National Opera House (Ireland), and making broadcasts for BBC 2 Proms Extra, BBC Radio 3 and Radio Bremen.

“Everything Clowes does has an invigorating purposefulness” – Ivan Hewett, the Telegraph

“uncommon genius” – JazzdaGama
