Clark Tracey, son of the legendary British jazz pianist Stan Tracey, has been a major figure on the UK jazz scene for more than 40 years. He started by playing piano and vibraphone but switch to the drums when he was 13. He turned professional at 17, playing in ensembles led by his father, including one called Fathers and Sons with John and Alec Dankworth in the 1990s. He has recorded over 100 albums (15 as a leader) and performed in over 50 countries. He has been awarded “Best Drums” title six times in the British Jazz Awards (most recently in 2018) and Ronnie Scott’s Award for “Best Drums” in 2007.

Since the early 1980s he has led a series of his own groups, involving a whole range of leading UK jazz players and often showcasing the considerable talents of young musicians. For instance, in this session he’ll be playing with saxophonist Alex Clarke, winner of the Rising Star category in the 2019 British Jazz Awards, and 20-year-old vocalist Emily Masser from the Guildhall School of Music.
