Alex Hitchcock/Will Barry duo by Matt Pannell

Alex Hitchcock (saxophone)/Will Barry (electric piano)

The Midland - Stanley Suite

Saxophone and piano duets from two remarkable young talents who convey maturity and excitement with every note: original work features alongside new arrangements of pieces by Hermeto Pascoal and the Yellowjackets.


“We have been playing together for over ten years and so we hope that our excitement in playing each other’s original compositions and natural musical communication comes across when playing live. We think the duo format allows us to be eclectic when choosing repertoire besides our own originals, and so we include new interpretations of tunes by Hermeto Pascoal, Yellowjackets and Lennie Tristano.”


Will Barry: “sensitive and fluid – a beautiful sound.”
Chucho Valdes

Alex Hitchcock: “Incredible young lion of the tenor sax.”
Gareth Lockrane
