About the Event
ROBERT FOWLER is one of British jazz's greatest tenor-saxophonists. Securely rooted in the classic traditions of Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Chu Berry and their peers, he began playing clarinet and tenor in Bristol; then emabarked on a professional career in 1986 with the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, thereafter worked with a wide variety of UK players from Keith Nichols and Enrico Tomasso to Jean Toussaint and Gary Crosby as well as touring for two years with rock singer Brian Ferry's 'As Time Goes By' presentation. From the early 2000s he worked regularly with big bands including Syd Lawrence, trumpeter Paul Lacey's 'Back to Basie', and the BBC Big Band as well as with small groups including Humphrey Lyttelton, The Great British Jazz Band, the Pizza Express All-Stars and (notably) Alan Barnes' Octet with whom he features on Alan's latest album: 'The David Copperfield Suite' alongside Karen Sharp, Mark Nightingale and the leader. This is an extra-special concert by an extra-special musician so do book early.
