Hi All

I love jazz music but most of my heros are dead and most of the jazz played live down here in the west country tends to be trad or similar.

I mainly listen to John Coltrane(aka God), Monk, Kirk, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins and similar but I want to broaden my horizons and listen to some newer stuff.

I know about the likes of Courtney pine and Andy Sheppard and I really like Jan Garbarek and John Surman but there must be thousands of fantastic young sax players out there that I have never heard of.

So what I am looking for is mainly British, sax based modern jazz that I may be able to actually see live once in a while.

Bring it on

Have a listen to Alan Skidmore, who does a wicked tribute gig to Coltrane,also with his african mates Amampondo.
Stan Sulzmann with Kenny Wheeler and John Paricelli called Ordessa.
Try Tubby Hayes (plenty on You tube) dead but not forgotten.
Mark Lockheart with loads of bands too numerous to mention.
Martin Speake on alto a great player.
That should keep you busy.
