Brandon Allen Sextet
"The newly-formed UK jazz sextet are making their debut at Hideaway. All members of the band are highly respected solo artists, leaders and composers in their own right. On the night they will be performing fresh arrangements of jazz classics old and new, with strong melodies and virtuosic instrumental solos."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Brandon is an ex-pat Australian saxophonist who has made quite an impression on the scene since taking up residence in London. A leading soloist in several jazz orchestras back home he also led his own successful group before decamping to Europe in 2002.
His wonderfully fluent and incisive sax playing has been heard in prestigious venues all over Europe and at numerous festivals around the world, including the Womad World Music Festival, Reading Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival, The Vittoria and Terrassa Jazz Festivals in Spain, Manly Jazz Festival in Australia and the London Jazz Festival.
In London alone he has performed with the likes of Eric Clapton, Mica Paris, Jools Holland, BBC Big Band and Omar, which gives you an idea of just how good he is! Brandon is also the founder & Artistic Director of the Highgate Jazz with Soul Festival, adding a further string to his bow.
Featuring some of the finest musicians on the UK jazz scene, including the multi award-winning saxophonist Nigel Hitchcock, the award-winning Robbie Harvey on trombone and the powerhouse rhythm section of Ross Stanley on piano, Mark Lewandowski on bass and the brilliant Ian Thomas on drums.
"Brandon Allen is arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today" Jazzwise;
"Nigel Hitchcock has been wowing audiences since he was still in his teens. From recording with the amazing "Itchy Fingers" sax quartet to touring with pop heavyweights like Mark Knopfler, he's done the lot" Saxophone Life.
