* * * * * "Best Drummer" in the British Jazz Awards 2017 & 2018 * * * * *

Internationally renowned multi award winning drummer Clark Tracey has led his own ensembles for more than 30 years and always encouraged the best of the next generation. These have included Guy Barker, Zoe Rahman and Alec Dankworth along with many other now familiar names. His latest group features the incredible Sean Payne, just 18 years old, and James Copus on trumpet who is probably the best of today's young jazz musicians.

" I hope he'll keep this group and let it develop and grow. This CD has given me so much listening pleasure, it may well end up as my Record of the Year" - Jazzwise 2019

"Clark Tracey, an increasingly important catalyst in the development of young musicians, presented his latest quintet in the context of an evening entitled Bebop & Beyond. Often overlooked in these days of modal and ambient jazz, bebop retains its freshness and urgency and the quintet handled it with great assurance, both in terms of adhering to the tight arrangements and in solos which demonstrated a high degree of technique and invention. A solid programme included 'Hot House', 'Groovin' High', 'Anthropology' and 'A Night in Tunisia', giving all the members opportunity to show their capabilities, and on 'Minority' trumpeter Alexandra Ridout's clear tone and the expressive alto of Sean Payne brought to mind the definitive 1953 rendition by Clifford Brown and composer Gigi Gryce. All the time Clark drove the rhythm section in customary fashion, eliciting solid contributions from pianist Elliott Sansom and bassist James Owston, who showed a prodigious mastery of his instrument. A group of youngsters well worth looking out for." - Jazzwise 2018
