Alex Western-King is an award-winning young musician who is generally considered to be one of the most talented saxophonists of his generation. With an impressive CV and band that claims the space between forward thinking post-bop and all out free improvisation, Alex is rapidly establishing himself at the forefront of the modern UK jazz scene. Having shared the stage with the likes of Dame Cleo Laine, Justin Stanton (Snarky Puppy), Julian Siegel, Gareth Lockrane and more Alex is now striking out with his debut release, 'SideSlip' on Ubuntu Music which was released last year at the Club. Tonight, appearing with his quartet featuring Sam Leak-piano, Jonny Wickham-bass & Dave Ingamells-drums, Alex will perform a melodic, straight ahead, set of jazz standards and originals.
