Teddington’s award-winning French-style restaurant the Retro Bistrot is bringing sultry saxophonist Hannah Horton to lead their jazz night on Tuesday evening June 24th.
“Hannah has a warmly attractive ‘vocal’ sound on the tenor and baritone saxophone combined with lovely unhackneyed phrasing”
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.
She graduated from the Trinity College of Music with an advanced postgraduate performance diploma, and since then her hallmark velvet tone and versatility have attracted growing audiences.
Renowned jazz guitarist John Etheridge, commented: ‘Hannah has a warmly attractive ‘vocal’ sound on both the tenor and baritone saxophone, combined with lovely un-hackneyed phrasing.’
In addition to leading her own jazz quartet, Hannah is a composer in her own right. She has played alongside many great jazz musicians including John Etheridge, Tina May, Roger Beaujolais, Acoustic Triangle, Simon Bates, Irene Serra, Tommaso Starace, Rob Hughes, Buster Cooper and John Lamb.
