The internationally-acclaimed jazz clarinettist Adrian Cox, at age 37, is certainly at the top of his game. He is currently nominated for Jazz Clarinettist of the Year (British Jazz Awards 2020) and his last album Profoundly Blue was nominated for Jazz Album of the Year (UK Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2019).

In 2018, Adrian was invited to perform with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra at London’s famous Barbican Centre, playing the music from the Benny Goodman 1938 Carnegie Hall concert. Cox then went on to perform in New York at the gala concert celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Lincoln Centre, and was amongst guests including the great Tony Bennett.

With his own band, Adrian has been touring the globe performing music from his project Profoundly Blue, which celebrates the music of jazz clarinet legend Edmond Hall, with sell-out concerts at Ronnie Scott’s (London) and Dizzy’s Club (New York) being amongst the highlights of the 200+ shows.

Adrian has come to the attention of a wider audience thanks to regular appearances on BBC Radio 2 (the Clare Teal show), BBC Radio 3 (Alyn Shipton’s Jazz Record Request), and BBC Radio 6 (the Cerys Matthews show).

Adrian has the ability to engage with his audience both on and off-stage, with an unrivalled feel for the music he plays, which combined with his virtuosic technique has lead to wide critical acclaim, including Time Out declaring him “London’s most charismatic reedsman”.

His latest album release Now Is Spring (released in January 2020) is his first all original offering and sees Cox breaking new ground and pushing jazz forward once again, whilst keeping the role of the clarinet at the forefront,

“Touches the other world that all musicians aspire to” Cerys Matthews (BBC6 Music/BBC Radio2)
