With a career spanning more than half a century, Johnny “little giant” Griffin “straddled the melodic intricacies of modern jazz, the flying-trapeze showmanship of the earlier swing era and a swaggering bluesiness often associated with the Count Basie circle”. Nicknamed as the “little giant” due to his short stature and forceful saxophone playing, Johnny Griffin is recognised as being one of the main pioneers of hard bop jazz. Whilst making many records as a band leader, Griffin also had notable stints as a sideman with Thelonious Monk and Art Blakey in partnership with fellow saxophone titan Eddie “lockjaw” Davis. Griffin moved to Europe in 1963 due partly to his rejection of the free jazz movement in America. It was at this point that he began to appear regularly under his own name at Ronnie Scott’s.

A graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Alex Western-King has quickly emerged onto the UK jazz scene  and can be seen playing regular shows around the country.
