WORLD JAZZ LIVE SESSIONS AT THE TOWER - Hosted by Maiuko

Clark Tracey BEM grew up in a jazz environment as the son of Stan Tracey OBE, CBE, the UK's multi award winning legendary jazz pianist, and from an early age took to the piano and vibraphones. At 13 he started playing the drums and turned professional at 17 in 1978 by joining his father's various ensembles, from trio to orchestra for the next 35 years, up until Stan's death in 2013, then Clark has continued to promote Stan's music ranging from quartet to big band. A prolific composer and arranger, his quartet will feature Stan's tunes from the 1950s to his final works, spreading over an impressive 70 year career in Jazz. 

Tonight's band features Stan's last line up of several years, Simon Allen on Reeds , Andrew Cleyndert on Bass and Clark on Drums, with Bruce Boardman taking Stan's place on piano. 

Named Best Drummer at the 2017 British Jazz Awards
