Brandon Allen has established himself as one of the UK’s most in demand saxophonists and bandleaders.
He has performed extensively throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia, both as a leader and sideman.
Throughout his career he has worked with top international artists including Eric Clapton, Paloma Faith, Kyle Eastwood, Tony Lakatos, Adam Nussbaum, Gary Husband, Stefano Di Battista, US3, The Blockheads and many others.
The ‘Stanley Turrentine Project’ came about because of a deep admiration and respect for the late great saxophonist’s musical approach and output.
The repertoire of the group draws mainly from Turrentine’s releases on the Bluenote and CTI labels.
In addition, some of saxophonist’s renditions of rock/pop hits of the 60’s and 70’s will be reimagined by Brandon’s exciting new quartet.
Expect some soulful saxophone playing accompanied by a hard swinging and funky rhythm section.
"His four-octave range and flawless command of the altissimo register was nicely offset by his full-bodied yet raucous tonal quality offering something for fans of the entire history of the instrument- from Hawkins to Brecker- he's got em covered."
