‘Citizen’ the new album from Duncan Eagles. Out February 15th 2018 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)
December - Thanks to all who came and sold out our gig at the London Jazz Festival in November, we had a blast!. I’m now looking forward to releasing the album next February and getting into performing the music. We have a bunch of dates around the UK and Europe starting towards the end of January stretching into April.
I’ve just done an interview with film maker Dan Redding for his new documentary project entitled ‘The Music Quiz’. It’s a 10 minute interview looking into how it is to live as a musician in the city of London. I’ve added the interview to the video’s section of this site, take a look!
