Trish Clowes

“A high intensity, mercurial workout provides further evidence that Clowes is an improviser to be reckoned with”
Downbeat Magazine

Gilles Peterson

‘Abbott & Costello’
directed by Rose Hendry

“a band’s band … high speed melodic chases, punchy avant garde jams, spacey organic textures and even Weather-Report-inspired rock fusion… and Clowes, singing on the beautifully meandering epic ‘Free to Fall’.”
New York State Music, on MY IRIS live 2019

“Distinctive tunes all, Clowes sews wide-open spaces into the sonic embroidery that invite very personal responses from the musicians”
4* from Ian Patterson, All About Jazz

“Trish Clowes doesn’t just play the saxophone, she reinvents it.”
Rochester City Newspaper

“… the increasingly formidable Trish Clowes… blending jazz energy with expertly-crafted structural devices … Her quartet negotiates the whole apparatus with insight.”
4* from BBC Music Magazine

“covers vast emotional territory with verve and vim”
4* from Mojo Magazine

“There is a balance between the players and a stylistic openness in the material, which shifts stealthily between a grounded, melodic accessability and airy abstraction.”
Kevin le Gendre, Jazzwise, 4* for Ninety Degrees Gravity

“…veering between velvet and violence. Clowes has complete mastery of the tenor… Her lightning ability to transfer complex thought to action was equalled by the other virtuoso players”
Chris Kilby, bebopspokenhere blog, MY IRIS live on tour 2019

“Listen, and then listen again, if only to remind yourself that this beautiful other world really does exist.”
Fiona Talkington on Ninety Degrees Gravity

“exhilarating and darkly funky”
John Fordham, the Guardian, 4*

“Everything Clowes does has an invigorating purposefulness”
Ivan Hewett, the Telegraph, 4* for MY IRIS Album Launch

“spiralling melodic lines from saxophone, guitar and organ that overlapped to thrilling effect…The audience rose to its feet to demand an encore… a meeting of poetry and rhythmic drive”
Ian Patterson, All About Jazz, MY IRIS live on tour 2018

“musical wizardry”
Fiona Ord-Shrimpton, All About Jazz, 4.5* for MY IRIS

“jazz of the future” – Augsburger Allgemeine

“The jazz of the future… The time in the townhouse flies by, so moved one is listening to this quartet”
