The Benn Clatworthy Quartet

Presented by Norden Farm Jazz Club.

Benn Clatworthy (sax, flute)
Alex Hutton (piano)
Simon Thorpe (bass)
Darren Beckett (drums)

Back by popular demand!

Benn was active in the London Music Scene in the 1970’s and was a protégé of Ronnie Scott. He moved to L.A. California in 1980 where he is now based. He was recommended for Horace Silver’s band and recordings followed. Having skills as a multi-instrumentalist (tenor, alto, baritone sax, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet) he has carved a career in the L.A music scene. He has worked with a huge array of class A musicians from the LA Philharmonic Orchestra to Cab Calloway. However, his main passion is playing Tenor Sax in a quartet setting – and his approach is unique. Playing from the songbook of Blue Note and more contemporary jazz, his tone is extraordinarily beautiful, and his melodic ideas come from the heart. As someone said recently 'It’s as though he’s talking to us and telling us a story through the saxophone!’

What to watch out for – The ballads will be enchanting, the up-tempo songs will be invigorating.
