‘Ballamy’s is a melodic thoughtful style, born out in beautiful original tunes’ – Time Out
Listed in the BBC’s ‘100 Jazz Greats’, Ballamy has a rare and beautiful sound on the tenor saxophone, both captivating and instantly recognisable.
He has established himself as a player and composer of note on the world’s jazz stages., performing as a featured concerto soloist with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and BBC Philharmonic Orchestras.
His remarkable new quartet features world-class pianist Huw Warren, the extraordinary flamboyant virtuoso bassist / trumpeter Percy Pursglove and Mark Whitlam, a uniquely versatile and gifted drummer.
