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 earlier this year at the Club. Appearing with Alex will be Sam Leak-piano, Jonny Wickham-bass and Jay Davis-drums, along with his very special guests: the great Alex Garnett-saxophone and the highly respected Steve Fishwick-trumpet. This is an evening that promises to be quite special.
