His style can encompass all aspects of modern jazz and his eclectic collaborations have seen him work with some of the UK's major artists and poets. He was the first ever musician Artist in Residence at Tate Britain where he was commissioned to research and compose music in response to the work of JMW Turner.

Alex Garnett Alex Garnett

Quite simply put, Alex is one of the most swinging saxophone players you will hear in the United Kingdom. Fluent on tenor or alto, his style is firmly rooted in the bebop and post bop eras of the 50's and 60's, and he is regularly to be found at Ronnie Scott's hosting the late night jam sessions. Joining him tonight are Alex Bryson on piano, Dario De Lecce on double bass and drummer Matt Home.
