TONY WOODS QUARTET
March 19 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£15.00
A very welcome return to the Jazz Cafe from award-winning alto saxophonist Tony Woods.
A recipient of awards for saxophone, outstanding performance and the soloist’s prize at the Dunkirk International Jazz Festival, Tony recorded three highly acclaimed albums of original, folk inspired compositions with his group Project and later formed the Avalon Trio with Pete Churchill to explore the possibilities of improvising on English classical music, releasing the debut album “Forlana” in 2011 to great critical acclaim. He has also performed at the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Purcell Room, Pizza Express Jazz Club and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.
“a deceptively reserved player with all kinds of hidden fires… full of surprises”
