Music - Jazz, Fri 20 Jan 2017


Wakefield Sports Club (College Grove),
Eastmoor Road,


Trish Clowes has been on an rapid upward trajectory since before leaving college. She was quickly recognised by the BBC and made a “New Generation Artist” in 2012 which culminated in her commission to write a suite for them performed at the 2014 London Jazz Festival and which won A BASCA Composition award the following year. She has worked with the cream of UK’s jazz musicians of her and older generations and is universally complimented for her writing and improvisational skills.
Her latest project evokes the multifaceted ‘Iris’ – a Greek mythological character who pops up frequently in the works of Shakespeare. This is developed from recent musical collaborations and features new material written for the CD recorded in 2016.
“Her themes and harmonies are angular and quirky, and she shares Thelonius Monk’s talent for building an overall sense of inevitability out of surprising details. As an improviser she achieves a similar melding of the unexpected and the inexorable” Barry Witherden BBC Music Magazine
