Benn Clatworthy Quartet

“A saxophonist with punch” - the London born, Los Angeles-based tenorist, Benn Clatworthy blows with a “dynamic style, which often carries the rhythms of the boxer’s speed bag”. Distilling the early influences of Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins Booker Ervin, and late Coltrane among others, his fans included Ronnie Scott, who is quoted as calling him one of the best UK players he had ever heard. The current line up features a first class rhythm section of John Donaldson, Simon Thorpe and Darren Becket.
Expect exhilarating reworkings of familiar tunes and an expressive flow of fresh ideas from this truly impressive modern jazz tenor.
