Trish Clowes

“awesome foursome… impeccable”
Dave Gelly, the Observer, 4* for MY IRIS

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

“Everything Clowes does has an invigorating purposefulness… her clever way with small things can open a big space, pregnant with possibility. One day she will surely inhabit it.”
Ivan Hewett, the Telegraph, 4* for MY IRIS Album Launch

“Whatever planet Trish Clowes and her band were on when they recorded this, I want to be there! Innovation, wit, wisdom, elegance – My Iris is already a contender for Album of 2017”
Fiona Talkington, BBC Radio 3

“musical perfection… All eight tracks on the album are masterpieces”
Alan Musson, UK Vibe, 5/5 for MY IRIS

My Iris is a tour de force for Trish Clowes whose music is subtly modulated as she spins wonderfully fluid, mellifluous textures, tenderly drawing from her reeds a gem-like brightness reminiscent of burnished gold.”
Raul da Gama, JazzdaGama

“There’s an energy and a focus about this, Clowes fourth album for UK indie Basho records, that suggests a creative breakthrough.”
Phil Barnes, All About Jazz, 4.5* for MY IRIS

“With an agile, melodic imagination and an economy of ideas learned from Wayne Shorter, Clowes is a fluent improviser, and this set of original tunes was clearly intended to liberate rather than dictate”
Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times, 4* for MY IRIS

“the Englishwoman’s quirky songwriter’s ear, subtly sleepy tenor sax sound and bright intensity on soprano are anything but cerebral”
John Fordham, The Guardian, 4* for MY IRIS

“surprising, inventive and absorbing… engrossing group performances that engage the head, heart and feet”
Barry Witherden, BBC Music Magazine, 4* for MY IRIS
