Alex is one of the most in-demand and versatile saxophonists on the British jazz scene, praised for her intelligent ear for harmony and a deep knowledge of repertoire, Alex’s sound is steeped in the tradition of bebop. Her total respect for the heritage of the music can be heard in a fiery, melodic approach inspired by the likes of Phil Woods, Cannonball Adderley and Vincent Herring. Alex was winner of the Rising Star category of the 2019 British Jazz Awards, was finalist in the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the year 2020 and nominated for the 2021 and 2022 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. In 2022 Alex released “Only A Year” featuring David Newton, Dave Green and Clark Tracey, she has been touring that band since then to great acclaim. Alongside her solo work she regularly performs alongside such notable names as Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams and Art Themen, as well as regularly working with the prestigious Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra and Simon Spillett Big Band.

Adam Stokes is an up-and-coming Guitarist blending Jim Hall Style melodic development with Thelonious Monk’s angular dissonances, he is known on the Bristol scene as the host of the Stag and Hounds Jam session where he has played with the who’s who of Bristol Jazz. Chris Jones (Orfic, Weareleif, Nurdle) is a first-call Bassist who has played across the UK from Theatre Pits to Pizza Express Soho, his blending of contemporary rhythmic ideas and guttural blues draws comparisons to the likes of Larry Grenadier and Charlie Haden.

Matt Stockham Brown (6161, Ex-Run Logan Run, Sefrial, Modulusiii, Orfic) is a busy touring drummer who has performed with the likes of Gregory Porter, Pee Wee Ellis and Andy Sheppard, his band Run Logan Run won the 2018 Montreux Jazz Festival Talent Awards and he was featured in Rhythm Magazine’s ’10 British Newcomers’ article.
