Alex Clarke, winner of the Rising Star category at the 2019 British Jazz Awards and a finalist in the BBC Young Jazz Musician of 2020, brings an intuitive youthful response to a variety of musical settings from New Orleans to bebop. Alex’s deep respect for the heritage of the music shows in a swinging melodic approach reminiscent of Scott Hamilton and Lester Young. Capable of going head to head with Alan Barnes in a festival livestream, she is also versatile enough to fit in with a wide variety of bands, most recently the Jake Leg Jug Band.
