“Young monarch of swing” - JazzWise Magazine

“Deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, but saying its own thing… a pleasure to listen to. - “A night of seriously good music” - London Jazz News 

Alex Western-King is an award-winning musician who is generally considered to be one of the most talented saxophonists of his generation. With an impressive CV and a band comprised of some of the most in demand jazz musicians in Europe, Alex is rapidly positioning himself at the forefront of the jazz scene. 

This band augments swingin’ jazz standards, injecting them with fresh creativity and infectious energy. Locking horns with Western-King in this two-tenor quintet is Alex Garnett, one of the leading saxophonists in the UK and Mainland Europe for over 2 decades. “A first call sideman to the stars” (JazzWise Magazine), Garnett is instantly recognized by his dark, husky sound. 

Described as “masterly and hypnotic” (AllAbout Jazz), Sam Leak provides the perfect harmonic support to compliment this fiery  front line. Jonny Wickham’s “influential grounding presence” (The Jazz Mann) provides harmonic and rhythmic support in the form of the double bass. A “precise, attentive and an exciting soloist” (Sussex Jazz Magazine), Jay Davis provides driving energy on drums. 

With tunes from legendary artists Miles Davis, Bob Brookmeyer, Al Cohn, Joe Lovano, Chick Corea and Booker Little among the bands own original compositions, this is not one to be missed.
