‘Citizen’ the new album from Duncan Eagles. Out now on Ropeadope.
"Think of the sound of JD Allen on "I Am I Am" played through the filter of an English sense of melancholia" DownBeat USA
"Saxophonist Duncan Eagles holds the stage with his attractively dry tone, sharpness and the urgent ferocity of his tenor improvising" John Fordham, The Guardian
" Eagles's tone on his various horns achieves an impressive blend of colours and dynamics. His compositions and arrangements, embracing sinuous, sinewy elegance, spiky funk and languid ballads, repay close attention." BBC Music Magazine
"He’s a master in fine distinctions, who moves effortlessly between traditional and modern styles of playing" Klaus Gholke (booker at Jazz Im Braunschweig, Germany)
January / February - It’s a busy start to the year. My next album is being released into the world on the 15th Feb and the tour starts at the end of the month at the Omnibus Theater in Clapham! We are playing all over the UK and beyond including opening for Joshua Redman at the Barbican on the 18th February, 2 nights at the iconic jazz club Ronnie Scotts and headlining the Open Jazz Festival in Belgium. Check the tour dates for more info and hopefully catch you at one.
