Paul Towndrow

Star soloist with the Scottish National Orchestra, Edinburgh-based saxophonist Paul Towndrow brings his quartet to the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival for an evening of upbeat and expressive tunes that will have your toes tapping. The melodic combination features Steve Hamilton on the ivories, Michael Janisch taking up the bass and Alyn Cocker on drums. The quartet have recorded two albums together – Colours and Out Of Town – and, if the success of their leader is anything to go by, have great things ahead of them.

The Lot, Edinburgh, 25 Jul.
