Trish Clowes

Saxophonist and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Trish Clowes is making a name for herself by exploring the ground between jazz and contemporary classical music, and performs here with a nonet that does just that. Appropriately then, the group brings together a jazz quintet (featuring special guest pianist Gwilym Simcock) and a string quartet, with the lines between them blurred by a shared refinement of sound and willingness to improvise. Clowes' strongly lyrical music shifts between textures that are sometimes groove-led, sometimes closer to classical chamber music in their detail, with this gig featuring material from her recently released second album 'And In The Night-time She Is There'.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Phil Smith.
