Paul Towndrow Organ Trio // Matt Carmichael Quartet

Paul Towndrow Organ Trio //  Matt Carmichael Quartet image

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.


Paul Towndrow Organ Trio: Paul Towndrow (saxophone), Pete Johnstone (organ), Alan Cosker (drums)

Matt Carmichael Quartet: Matt Carmichael (tenor saxophone), Fergus McCreadie (piano), Ali Watson (double bass), Tom Potter (drums)
