Since headlining the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms in 2018, saxophonist Jess Gillam has been on a meteoric rise. With performances spanning classical repertoire to arrangements of David Bowie, this young “saxophone sensation” (BBC Music Magazine) has taken Britain, and now the world, by storm. Hear a selection of eclectic pieces from her acclaimed debut album, RISE.
“Vibrant and assured, her playing showed exquisite control of colour, volume and timbre.”– Evening Standard
