Mick Foster (1st Show)


Mick Foster – Baritone Saxophone, Alto Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone
Dominic Ashworth – Guitar
Tom Farmer – Bass
Tristan Mailliot – Drums


Mick Foster is a saxophonist and composer who is known as one of the UK’s foremost exponents of the baritone saxophone. ‘Live at The Vortex’ is an album of melodic original pieces composed by Mick. It was recorded at The Vortex Jazz Club, London, in 2018 and captures the intimacy and excitement of this venue. Mick plays baritone, alto and soprano saxophones and is joined by the engaging, versatile trio of Dominic Ashworth on guitars, Tom Farmer on bass and Tristan Mailliot on drums.

“Consider this album as a compendium of delights: each player at ease and intent. The Vortex audience clearly loved it all, as did this reviewer. A racing certainty for my ‘Top Ten of 2020’ list.” Peter Vacher, Jazzwise, ****
