As a finalist of the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year award 2020, and the winner of the “Rising Star” category in the 2019 British Jazz Awards, Alex Clarke is one of the most exciting young jazz musicians to emerge on the UK jazz scene. Alex’s musical voice is steeped in the tradition of jazz; her swinging melodic sound is reminiscent of Scott Hamilton and Lester Young and is also heavily influenced by Phil Woods and Cannonball Adderley. She has performed alongside Gilad Atzmon, Greg Abate, Dave Newton and Art Themen.

Winner of the 2014 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, Misha Mullov-Abbado is an in-demand bass player, composer and arranger based in London. He is a 2017 BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist and a 2014 City of Music Foundation Artist. Misha has performed at Ronnie Scott’s, the Royal Albert Hall, and his cello concerto was premiered at the Queen Elizabeth Hall by Matthew Barley and the BBC Concert Orchestra.  He co-directs the Patchwork Jazz Orchestra, an exciting young big band which won the 2015 Peter Whittingham Award.

Tommy Scott is well known for his dynamic performances and melodic compositions. His debut album, with Asaf Sirkis and Yuri Goloubev, was featured in the albums of the year in ‘Jazz Views’. Tommy has also appeared as a sideman with Mornington Lockett, Greg Abate, Damon Brown, Phil Robson, Dave O’Higgins, Jean Toussaint and many others.

This promises to be an extraordinary first-time collaboration of these three very talented players.
