A “musician’s musician” Alex has enjoyed a varied musical career as both a pro jazz artist and an in-demand session and studio saxophonist. His powerful, flowing, hard bop sax style has been heard with some of Europe's leading bands and creative jazz ensembles, and it is testament to his reputation that Alex is also one of the few headlining UK jazz musicians in the current Ronnie Scott’s All Stars pool. He is the sideman of choice for many of the finest visiting artists and has himself performed in over 30 countries worldwide with artists such as Sir John Dankworth, Wynton Marsalis, Peter King, Humphrey Lyttelton, Van Morrison and Jools Holland. His most recent album, "Andromeda" released on the greatly respected Whirlwind Recordings label was launched at the Club in 2015 to considerable acclaim. Tonight, Alex is bringing his straight ahead jazz quintet, The Jazz Ambassadors, to the Club aiming to bring the hard grooving swing tradition of days gone by into a more contemporary 21st century setting. The gig features the impressive rhythm section of Alex Bryson-piano, Dario de Lecce-bass and Matt Home-drums. Brilliant, swinging jazz.
