Tuesday 2nd July 2024 – East Grinstead Jazz Club is delighted to welcome back 
Charlotte Glasson multi-Instrumentalist

Charlotte Glasson is a British multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, composer and session player, playing soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone, flute, alto flute, piccolo, clarinet, bass clarinet, violin and viola, penny whistle, melodica, percussion, and saw.

House Band Adrian York Piano, Paul Whitten Bass with Vince Dunn on drums.

As well as running her own band, Charlotte is a multi-instrumentalist session player and arranger. Currently on tour with The Waeve and Stornaway, her skills with her Tenor sax, flutes and Violin/Viola are always in demand. Previously, Charlotte has played and toured with The Divine Comedy, Clare Martin, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Barry Adamson, Nerina Pallot, and Chris Hodgkins. Her musical vocabulary is subtle and endlessly versatile.

With her own music, she is able to freely draw inspiration from the rich lineage of contemporary jazz composers while wearing these influences lightly. Fuelled by the travel bug, her music finds inspiration from across the globe. The textures are conjured from gossamer, hanging gently in a summer breeze, crowned by birdsong. Evocative of a hazy day in the sun, running across a field of scented grass, the blades gently squeezing between your toes. This is music to dream with.
In June 2024  Charlotte will be releasing  her new  album “Cosmo’s Cosmos.’

Saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist, Charlotte brings a huge bag of tricks to play with her, and this album is no exception. Tenor Sax, flute and strings all feature, along with the Guitar of Chris Spedding, Mark Bassey on Trombone, Chris Kibble on Piano, Lloyd Coote on bass and sousaphone, and Sam Glasson on Drums and Percussion. Theirs is a contemporary jazz, free of anxiety, yet full of grace and fun, bringing to mind the endless skies of a summer morning, or the hot buzz of a glorious seaside sunset. This is music for a positive frame of mind.

Cosmo’s Cosmo is her ‘eighth album, mining a rich seam of latin and world music influences, this is sunshine music, woven with smiles. Sharing the writing credits across the band, the tunes share the freedom of a child’s imagination, exploring the world with all its potential for play.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday 4th June at 10am.
