Hannah Horton at Jazznights with Roger Odell, Simon Brown, Bernie Hodgkins and vocals from Larraine Odell at The Bell Hotel, Clare on Sunday 7th April 2019

A natural born improviser from an early age, Hannah has played the saxophone since before high school days. As a youngster she attended the prestigious Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama and in her teens became a lead member of NYJO (National Youth Jazz Orchestra) and the National Youth Music Theatre. Accomplished on flute, bassoon and clarinet as well as sax, she now teaches her own students to a high level whilst pursuing her performing career with the Hannah Horton Quartet in London and the South East.

Defying categorisation, Hannah’s music spans jazz, latin, funk, blues and rock along with classical influences. Her unique tone, melodic and creative improvisation, and sensitive phrasing have become her signature sound which is beautifully captured in her debut album Forget Me Not (released October 2012). Featuring the formidable talents of John Crawford (piano), Rob Statham (bass) and Nic France (drums), the album includes her own compositions, an original take on jazz standards such as Caravan, and some lesser known pieces.

On Sunday 21st April we will feature – RENATO D’AIELLO

“Renato is a superlative saxophonist with a passionate and poetic soul. He has all the virtues – a beautiful sense of time and pacing and a technique which effortlessly projects his brilliantly flowing ideas.” Ian Carr, Jazz writer. “D’Aiello’s weighty, behind-the-beat sound shows a poetic imagination.” John Fordham, The Guardian,
