‘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
"Duncan Eagles is forging a new path and is likely on the road to even more success as the wave of London Jazz is swelling, signaling another British Invasion, this time in the jazz genre." Glide Magazine
"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)
April / May - I’ve just finished touring the UK to support the release of my latest album ‘Citizen’. We had some great gigs including two nights at Ronnie Scotts and opening for Joshua Redman at the Barbican. I’m now looking forward to some summer festivals including Bremen Music Festival in Germany and Love Supreme Jazz Festival in Brighton. In the meantime I’m looking forward to getting stuck back into some practice and playing with some of the other projects I’m involved with.
