“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. In 2008 she won the Peter Whittingham Development Award that allowed her to form her first ensemble, Tangent, followed by her eponymously named CD debut on Basho Records. 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” (launched at the EFG London Jazz Festival).
Her current quartet, My Iris, is widely recognised as in the vanguard of British jazz, and Trish’s last two albums with the band, the eponymous “My Iris” and their latest “Ninety Degrees Gravity” have been rapturously received, establishing her as an artist of considerable significance and stature. For this 606 appearance Trish, along with bandmates Chris Montague on guitar, Ross Stanley on piano and Hammond organ and James Maddren on drums, have crafted a bespoke programme including personal favourites from their repertoire but also new work created just for the EFG London Jazz Festival. An absolute treat.
