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” (The Guardian). Clowes is currently an Associate Artist at Wigmore Hall and her latest album ‘A View with a Room’ is out on Dave Douglas’s Greenleaf Music.

Her quartet is an intense and thrilling band that represents the front rank of the contemporary UK jazz scene. Lauded for her imaginative approach to improv and adroit writing Trish provides her all-star bandmates with a unique platform for individual expression and group interplay. 

Guitarist Mike Walker is a UK jazz legend who co led The Impossible Gentleman and has featured in George Russell and Kenny Wheeler bands. 

Ross Stanley is a multi-award winning pianist who’s worked with Trish on lots of projects. 

As has drummer Ian Thomas, who has also recorded with George Michael, Eric Clapton, Seal, Mark Knopfler, Van Morrison BB King and Michael Jackson. 

Support from The Matt Ratcliffe Trio.
