”Music to move you, body and soul”.

Inspired by the energy, passion and free expression found in the writing of Jack Kerouac, Dr Sax borrowed the name from one of his books and set about creating their own unique blend of Jazz, Rock, Soul & Latin.

“You guys rock!” was the review posted after the band performance at the Glastonbury Festival 2002 and six years and two albums later the band are still rocking, now with guitarist Cliff Moore (younger brother of blues legend Gary Moore) playing in the band.

For the 2009 4th album, 'Take It to the Bridge' there are new singers too: Steve Williams, who has been playing keyboards with the band from the beginning (he also plays keys for Jamelia) delivers two awesome vocal performances as does new guest vocalist 18 year old Sarah Davies who has taken over the chair from Beth Rowley, who herself, was last seen singing with Bert Bacharach at the BBC Proms(!). You can still, however, hear Beth singing with the band on their last album, ‘The Gospels According to Dr Sax’.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
