“Everything Clowes does has an invigorating purposefulness”
Described as “one of the most agile and original jugglers of improv and adventurous composition to have appeared in the UK in recent times” multi-award winning saxophonist and composer Trish Clowes has developed into one of the most exciting artists on the jazz scene today. A Peter Whittingham Development Award winner and a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Trish was nominated for a British Composer Award (BASCA) in 2013, going on to win it in 2015 for her BBC commission “The Fox and the Chestnut”. Her current quartet, My Iris, is widely recognized as in the vanguard of British jazz, and Trish’s last two albums, the eponymous “My Iris” and their latest “Ninety Degrees Gravity” have been rapturously received, establishing her as an artist of considerable stature. For this LJF appearance, along with bandmates Percy Pursglove-trumpet, Deschanel Gordon-piano, Conor Chaplin-bass and Winston Clifford-drums, Trish will be performing a repertoire that she only ever plays here at the 606. As she says “The 606 Club is totally unique in London and gives me a rare and cherished opportunity to play some much loved standards with some good friends. I'm particularly excited to be sharing the front line with my old pal Percy Pursglove on trumpet. The repertoire will include some classic tenor/trumpet pairings plus, of course, some of my originals”. So do come down to this LJF gig to hear one of the UK’s most original sax players in a setting unique to the 606 Club. An absolute treat.
