Alexander Hawkins Solo

Happy to welcome Oxford-based pianist & composer Alexander Hawkins for a rare solo outing in the stunning Mackintosh Queen’s Cross.

The Guardian has written that Hawkins’ work sounds like ‘all the future jazz you might imagine without ever being about to conceive of the details’, representing a ‘fundamental reassertion of composition within improvised music’. Alongside his profile as a soloist and bandleader, he can be heard live and on record collaborating with a vast array of crucial figures of all generations, ranging from Evan Parker, John Surman, Wadada Leo Smith, Mulatu Astatke, and Han Bennink, to the likes of Rob Mazurek, Matana Roberts, and Shabaka Hutchings. Particularly notable is his decade-long relationship with the legendary South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo.
