Doors 2:00pm, Show 2:30 to 4:30pm
Upcoming sax star, presented in association with New Generation Jazz
London-born saxophonist Alex Hitchcock is regarded as one of the UK’s most virtuosic young jazz musicians. His quintet’s critically acclaimed 2018 debut on Barcelona-based label Fresh Sound New Talent (home to debuts by artists including Ambrose Akinmusire and Avishai Cohen) was described by All About Jazz as ‘an exquisitely subtle collection of tunes… the clearest indicator to date of the stratospheric trajectory on which this super-talented quintet is indubitably heading’. Their increasingly burgeoning reputation on the international jazz stage was confirmed by a major prize at the 2018 Umbria Jazz Festival, as well as touring to Poland, Spain, Italy and Hungary and performances at legendary UK venues including Love Supreme Festival, the Royal Albert Hall and Ronnie Scott’s. He’ll be appearing with his new highly acclaimed seven-piece Dream Band project featuring vocalist Midori Jaeger and other special guests. Expect truly original, soul searing performances from world-class players.
