Roz Harding

Roz Harding is an “original and imaginative” (Mike Westbrook) alto saxophonist. The alto speaks volumes for Roz; she feels connected to it and audiences enjoy her ability to communicate - “a player who can tell a story that captivates and brings us back for more” (Gary Bayley). Described as “inspirational” and “immense” by Jazzwise Magazine, Roz has an expressive and “distinctive” (Smiths Academy Informer) style, citing her influences as Kate Bush, Bob Dylan, Frederick Alexander and his technique, Art Pepper, Jeff Buckley, Prince, Nick Drake, Manic Street Preachers and Jackie McLean. Roz lives in Devon and likes to play new music. She can be found playing saxophone in Mike Westbrook’s 'The Uncommon Orchestra', Kate Westbrook's GRANITE band, BREATH OF GREAT LIFE, Dave Holdsworth's New Brew, A Quiet Night In, Billie Bottle & the Multiple and leading her own project ///SUPERMOOD.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
