Trish Clowes Quartet at The Sugar Club
Save the date for this intriguing quartet fronted by the adventurous Trish Clowes, BASCA British Composer Award winner and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist. An agile improviser and songwriter in the mould of Wayne Shorter, Clowes has been much lauded for her melodic imagination and ”magisterial” tone. Previously known for genre-bending collaborations with improvising string quartets and orchestras, her take on jazz is playful, engaging – and hugely accomplished.
Clowes is joined by a trio of long-term collaborators showcasing original tunes from the saxophonist’s highly-acclaimed fourth album My Iris: the impeccable James Maddren on drums, award-winning Troyka guitarist Chris Montague, and keyboard virtuoso Ross Stanley, who has played with such jazz luminaries as Dennis Rollins, Guy Barker, Ian Shaw, Stan Sulzmann and John Parricelli, as well as being a regular member of the Jim Mullen Organ Trio.
