Tony Woods Project Short Info

The Project has had frequent air play on BBC Radio 3, Jazz FM, UK Jazz Radio and has released three albums (High Seas-FMR- in 1997, Lowlands-Basho in 2004 and Wind Shadows-33 Records-in 2009) all of which have received great reviews. The albums all feature melodic, folk inspired, quirky and uplifting compositions from Tony and exciting solos from the whole band. One aspect of the music is the way collective improvisations (reminiscent of early forms of jazz where the instrumentalists weaved their lines around each other) are incorporated into bigger structures.

"Combines a jazz edge with the melodic zest of folk...delightful" (BBC Radio 3)
"One of the most distinctive groups on the UK jazz scene" (The Jazz Mann)
"Definitely jazz for the 21st century" (Jazz Journal)
