My Iris is a new project from BASCA award winning composer and saxophonist Trish Clowes. Following collaborations with string quartets and the BBC Concert Orchestra, Clowes now shifts perspective to explore the possibilities of a small ensemble. My Iris features startling melodies, earthy grooves and gnarly lines, creating a sound world both intimate and thrilling. The group also investigate dynamics, textures, exciting interaction and sometimes fiery improvisation. My Iris represents a new chapter in Clowes' career.

23/02/2017 Chris Baber, Jazz Views

'The whole set is hugely accomplished, highly enjoyable and a major contribution to the contemporary UK jazz scene. It shows how imaginative composition and mixing of sounds from a tightly knit group of superb musicians can find new forms of expression. I can imagine each track on this set becoming a Standard for other groups in years to come. This is certainly going to feature of critics choices of album of the year.'

12/01/2017 John Fordham, The Guardian 4 stars****

Clowes’s emphasis on composition, and the reserved evenness of her delivery often get her a “chamber-jazz” label, but the Englishwoman’s quirky songwriter’s ear, subtly sleepy tenor sax sound and bright intensity on soprano are anything but cerebral.

'To achieve that range of sounds with a jazz quartet requires rare skill. How much other contemporary music has such adventurous or eclectic intellectual horizons?'
