Andrew Woolf

I play saxes and clarinets. I'm just getting going in my music career having finished studying music at university. I do some peripatetic teaching and try to spend the rest of the time practicing and writing. Once I've got enough material together I'll put a band or two together in London, where I'm based. Hopefully I'll be doing more than wedding gigs by the time I'm 40.

I'm into all sorts of different music, and very open minded. In the end, music, and art in general, for me is a means of communication. I'll listen to and play anything as long as it's creative and personal, which for me will a lot of the time include some element of improvisation. Straight ahead, contemporary, electronic, free, funk, whatever.

As well as jazz, I play a lot of classical and I'm currently getting into a lot of world music. I'm also interested in the relationships between music and visual mediums - film, dance, etc. I've done some playing with Indian dancers in the past. I'd love to do stuff with video/light installations.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
