“Brandon Allen is arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today”
Brandon Allen is an expat Australian saxophonist who has made quite an impression on the scene since taking up residence in London. His wonderfully fluent and incisive sax playing has been heard in prestigious venues all over Europe and at numerous festivals around the world, including the Womad World Music Festival, Reading Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival, The Vittoria and Terrassa Jazz Festivals in Spain, Manly Jazz Festival in Australia and the London Jazz Festival. He has performed and recorded with the likes of Eric Clapton, Mica Paris, Jools Holland, Paloma Faith, BBC Big Band, Omar and Kyle Eastwood, which gives you an idea of just how good he is! Tonight Brandon is appearing with his latest quartet featuring Ross Stanley-piano, Laurence Cottle-bass and Ian Thomas-drums. Described by Brandon as contemporary Jazz with a soulful edge 'loosely inspired by the music of Joe Henderson, Stanley Turrentine and Mike Brecker', they will perform new material recently written by Brandon while in "lockdown" as well as favourite standards from the jazz canon.
