Paul Towndrow Quartet:
Paul Towndrow (alto saxophone), Steve Hamilton (piano), Euan Burton (double bass) and Alyn Cosker (drums).
It’s been some time since Paul led his own quartet to the Blue Lamp so we are delighted that we have managed to get one of Scotland’s best sax players back to entertain and excite us.
Paul Towndrow is best known as a bandleader of ensembles ranging from duo to sextet and as a long-time member of Scotland’s flagship jazz orchestra, The SNJO. Performing professionally since the age of 15, and having spent his formative musical years studying on both sides of the Atlantic, Towndrow has become one the UK’s busiest musicians.
Paul has released five solo albums and has appeared as a sideman on many others. Much of his output is released on his own label, Keywork Records which was founded in 2005. His live credentials include appearances with a diverse range of artists from jazz greats Branford Marsalis, Randy Brecker, and John Scofield, to Motown stars Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, and soul legend Ben E King.
Once described in The Guardian as “A turbo-charged amalgam of all your saxophone heroes”, Towndrow has toured and recorded extensively in the UK and abroad, both under his own-name projects and others, such as with sensational US group The Bad Plus, New York based pianist David Berkman, Venezualan piano virtuoso Leo Blanco, jazz vocalist Kurt Elling, and jazz legend Benny Golson.
“This band confirms the contemporary Scottish scene's membership of the world league.”
4 Stars **** John Fordham, The Guardian
“It's musicians like this that make one so optimistic for the future of jazz” Jazzwise
”Full of excitement, full of edge and playing with all of the heart that the music needs.” Julian Joseph BBC Radio 3
