PATRICK CLAHAR is one of the leading saxophonists of his generation. A powerful, post-Coltrane tenor player his performance is tempered with a strong sense of melodic improvisation influenced by the great American tenor sax star Sonny Rollins. A leading light of the Julian Joseph Big Band and small group, Pat achieved worldwide recognition as the sax player with the Bill Bruford Band and is currently one of the featured musicians with the iconic Groove band Incognito. Long established and sought after on the studio scene, Pat has also worked with the likes of Jazz Jamaica and the band from the TV show “Strictly Come Dancing” (it’s a great band, trust me!). As well as a performer Pat is also an experienced and respected educator who is widely admired throughout the jazz fraternity. His world-class pedigree is undoubted. And watch out for his very special Special Guest!
