Winner of the Best Drummer at the 2017 British Jazz Award Clark Tracey has carved out a serious career for 40 years over and above being the son of his illustrious father Stan Tracey with whom he used to play; and whose legacy he keeps alive.
He has worked with many of the great American players, from Scott Hamilton and Johnny Griffin to Pharoah Sanders, as well as almost every leading British musician of the last thirty years.
Furthermore he has taken on the role of ‘mature mentor’ to many of the very many brilliant young players who seem to emerge on the jazz scene on a monthly basis. This is just such an exciting young group and they guarantee to deliver the hard bop message for which its leader is so revered
