FAZIOLI Nights | Alexander Hawkins (UK)
- Alexander Hawkins - piano
“Oxford, UK native Alexander Hawkins continues to chart a course that will inevitably place him in the creative category of pianist/composers of the caliber of Cecil Taylor and Andrew Hill” Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz
Alexander Hawkins is widely recognised as one of the UK’s most innovative and imaginative pianists, organists and composers. Alexander is self-taught with a great love and deep knowledge of the jazz tradition which he brings, along with classical references, to his compositions and improvisations.
Along with his solo performances, he works in a vast array of creative contexts including leading and composing for his Quartet and Ensemble; in duo with South African drum legend Louis Moholo-Moholo and in Moholo’s Blokes; his duo with Evan Parker, and with contemporary leaders, Anthony Braxton, Joe McPhee, Marshall Allen and Ethio-jazz pioneer Mulatu Astatke.
“…Hawkins is a really vital link in a long historical chain, and his ability to sculpt his own language from a deeply rooted creative bedrock is compelling” - Jazzwise
“Sounds like all the future jazz you might imagine without ever being able to conceive of the details. Hawkins improvises with the strength and conviction that come from combining an advanced technique with a teeming imagination”. The Guardian
