      Alex Western-King Quartet

      This gig presents a unique opportunity to witness the recording of Alex Western-King’s much awaited debut album. Alex Western-King is an award-winning musician and one of the most sought after saxophone players on the London jazz scene. Described as “reaching deep into the core of jazz”, this quartet is passionate about communicating through music and preserving the jazz tradition. The project focusses on capturing and preserving the beauty of the American Song book and the music inspired by it.

      Since forming in 2016 the AWK Quartet has gained a reputation for being one of the 'hardest swinging bands in town', with past performance highlights at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Spice of Life Soho, Hampstead Jazz Club, Green Note Jazz Club, Hot Numbers and Olivers Jazz Bar. The band infuses their love for classic bebop with contemporary compositions, creating a fresh and compelling sound. This is the DEBUT of some of Alex's original compositions, some of which have been written specifically for Pizza Express Jazz Club, along with a selection of much loved jazz standards. Alex's music has taken him all over the world and given him the opportunity perform with many world class musicians including Justin Stanton, Brad Allen Williams, Pee Wee Ellis, Dame Cleo Laine, Gareth Lockrane and Alex Garnett to name a few. His compositions allow the band to focus on improvisation, making way for alluring and unpredictable musical journeys.

      Cost: 15.00
