Paul Towndrow Organ Trio // Matt Carmichael Quartet
Paul Towndrow’s alto saxophone playing absorbs the entire tradition from Johnny Hodges to Charlie Parker; Ornette Coleman to David Sanborn, and distils it into a contemporary expression that beguiles and bewitches with a blend of power and passion. He’s a modern master on our scene. Here he is with the new kid on the block, the astonishing young tenor saxophonist, Carmichael, still studying at RCS, but already a major force in jazz. His Quartet play atmospheric, and often very beautiful melodic tunes with a keen grasp of Jazz and Scottish tradition.
