Additional Information

“She is an artist who draws you in, engages you, inspires you and captivates you. If you haven’t seen Hannah Horton live, you really should” – Fiona Ross, Jazz In Europe


“Hannah plays with so much soul and emotion” – Tony Kofi


“Hannah makes the big beast baritone sax sound like an angel” – Ian Shaw


Hannah Horton, who plays saxophones, flute, clarinet and bassoon, studied at the Junior Guildhall School of Music and Trinity Laban, where her tutors included Mark Lockheart and Tim Garland. She is a composer, bandleader and journalist who is a member of Women in Jazz Media and runs J Steps, an organisation whose main aim is to redress the historic lack of representation of women in jazz. She won the Jazz Education award at the 2020 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. Hannah has performed with many great jazz artists, including the late Amy Winehouse, Ian Shaw, John Etheridge, Tina May, Georgia Mancio, Polly Gibbons and Natalie Williams.


Pianist, composer, arranger and educator Tim Lapthorn’s style very much his own and his bluesy, flowing, lyrical sound sets him apart from many of his contemporaries. His albums ‘Outlines’ and ‘Natural Language’ received considerable critical acclaim and Tim has become a much in demand sideman for many British artists, playing alongside Brandon Allen, Vasilis Xenopoulos, Soweto Kinch, Tony Kofi and Clark Tracey – Tim’s performance with Clarke’s sextet gig at Crookes last year was a highlight of that season.


“Lapthorn blends witty invention with deep swing and unerring reassuring balance” – 4* review, Mojo magazine


“Tim Lapthorn’s pianistic abilities include a formidable technique and delicate touch, a wonderfully rich tone from the instrument. His equal command of strong melodicism, a loamy harmonic sense and an acute rhythmical drive make him the consummate jazz pianist” – London Jazz News
