Running Time

1 hour

Jess Gillam is a classical saxophonist with a difference.

Critics rave about her “hot licks, lustrous tone and winning passion” but radio listeners across the UK know her as a musical explorer – someone who takes music of any genre and turns it into an adventure. Expect delightful discoveries, sensational playing and effortless charisma as she assembles a team of equally gifted friends to share the music they love, from tangos to Björk.
