Clark Tracey

Featuring Mark Armstrong trumpet, James Wade-Sired trombone,  Tom Ridout reeds, Gareth Williams piano, James Owston bass, Clark Tracey drums

Clark Tracey is an excellent, highly experienced, award-winning drummer, bandleader, composer and arranger. He grew up in a jazz environment as the son of the late Stan Tracey and from an early age took to the piano and vibraphone. At 13 he started playing the drums and he turned professional at 17 in 1978 when his father Stan Tracey offered him the chair in his own band. He has now won Best Drums award on many occasions and is much in demand for his experienced and melodic drumming.

Clark has had 40 years’ experience playing alongside some of the most important artists in jazz at home and abroad. British artists include names such as Ronnie Scott, John Surman, Alan Skidmore, Kenny Wheeler, Alan Barnes, Don Weller and Tommy Smith. He has recorded over 100 albums (15 as a leader) and performed in over 50 countries.

“…one of the most impressive jazz drummers in Britain today” The Times

Clark has also had a long history of finding young talented musicians and presenting them in a professional environment. His most recently formed group is no exception and has even been tipped as his best line up for several years. All exceptional musicians, they have either won or taken part in award ceremonies in the past few years.

On trumpet we have Mark Armstrong, on trombone Daniel Higham, on reeds Tom Ridout, on piano Will Barry, and on bass James Owston. The driving force behind the night’s entertainment however will, of course, be Clark Tracey himself bringing a rhythmic diversity, taste and sensitivity that has made him one of the most respected musicians.
