After a thrilling concert with the Ridout Family in last year’s Uckfield Festival Tom Ridout returns with his own trio in a ground breaking new project.
Tom graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in jazz saxophone and baroque recorder. In 2016 he was runner up of the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year final. The Handel on Jazz project sees an acoustic trio of improvising jazz musicians, reworking Handel’s recorder sonatas, creating new music drawing from Handel’s melodies and harmonies. This project was winner of the Lancaster Jazz Festival Youth Jazz Commission 2018 but every performance is unique!
Plus their very own take on some more familiar jazz, both standards and originals.
This is an opportunity to hear some of the very best young British jazz musicians – here in Uckfield!
Tom Ridout – recorder and saxophones. Billy Marrows – Guitar. Flo Moore – Double Bass
