Duncan Eagles

Saxophonist - Composer - Bandleader -

" 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 has an impressively large and rounded tone, but is also a highly expressive soloist" Ian Mann

"Eagles is one of the most exciting tenor saxophonists to appear on the UK scene since Denys Baptiste first emerged" Marlbank 

"Eagles is fast becoming one of the most exciting players emerging on the UK jazz scene" Mike Flynn

"Tenorist Duncan Eagles and New Orleans born trumpeter Abram Wilson were the star turns" Jack Massirik, The Evening Standard

"Duncan Eagles played a searching tenor saxophone with a lyrical fire that perfectly complimented the adventurous play going on around him" London Jazz Blog

"Saxophonist Duncan Eagles holds the stage with his attractively dry tone, sharpness and the urgent ferocity of his tenor improvising" John Fordham, The Guardian

"In Duncan Eagles we have a young tenor / soprano saxist, a mere 25, who has listened and absorbed the past. His tone on tenor brings to mind Stan Getz, it's simply sublime, yet his ideas are very much entrenched in the jazz of today and tomorrow." BeBop Spoken Here

"Played with immense control and exquisite dynamics" London Jazz Blog

"Eagles holds down the malleable role of featured soloist and interactive improviser with great virtuosity"  Jazz UK
