Jazz at the University: Trish Clowes and Gareth Williams
Gareth Williams has unquestionably established himself as one of the country’s leading modern jazz pianists. A fiery and creative player, his remarkable talent has been seen with an impressive array of world-class artists, from Jazz/Hip Hop band “Us3”through to internationally-renowned jazz musicians such as Joe Lovano, George Coleman and Jim Mullen. Described as “one of the most agile and original jugglers of improv and adventurous composition to have appeared in the UK in recent times” multi-award winning saxophonist and composer Trish Clowes has made quite an impact in the relatively short time she has been on the UK jazz scene. Following her studies at the Royal Academy of Music, in 2008 she won the Peter Whittingham Development Award that allowed her to form her first ensemble, Tangent, followed by her eponymously named CD debut on Basho Records in 2010.
