"A strikingly large new British jazz talent arrives with saxophonist Tom Barford"


Tom has slowly been making his presence known on the global jazz scene with his well received debut album release Bloomer and with his co-lead album AuB, both released on the Edition Records label. Previous performance highlights for Tom have included Ronnie Scott’s with Billy Cobham, Three performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Album launches at Kings Place, and multiple international tours as a sideman.

Tom got to know each member of his quartet in separate bands as a sideman. Each member has a unique voice on their instruments and are band leaders in their own right too! Tom’s love for the sax-led quartet sound has led him to form this selection of amazing London based musicians. You can expect a set of feel-good swing, thought provoking contemporary jazz and well known jazz classics arranged for the modern day jazz quartet.
