We cannot believe we have the honour of hosting the amazing Adrian Cox and his band, who after great reviews from his Barbican and Royal Albert Hall concerts, and sharing his tour ‘Now is Spring’ with us after launching it at Pizza Express in London, we offer this exclusive concert at CICCIC as part of our Night to Day Programme.
World-renowned jazz clarinettist Adrian Cox and his quartet present music from their brand new album “Now Is Spring”.
The music on this album tour is written by Adrian and longtime collaborator, pianist Joe Webb.
So, what to expect from this concert?
Now Is Spring draws on Cox’s influences of New Orleans, blues and swing music. The tunes are written with the soul and passion of those beyond their years, and they have created a timeless set of beautiful melodies.
As a band they play as one, seamlessly creating an often orchestral voice. Their sound has become unmistakable and is one which we hope you will capture first hand.
Over the past 2 years, the band have toured extensively presenting their tribute to jazz clarinet legend Edmond Hall, with shows all across Europe and at Dizzy’s Club (New York). Their accompanying album “Profoundly Blue” is currently nominated in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2019 (Best Jazz Album).
Adrian continues to be one of the most in-demand musicians on the scene today and has played and recorded with many of the best including Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Guy Barker, Paloma Faith and the late Dr John to name a few.

Being praised by Time Out as ‘London’s most charismatic reeds man’ – Cox is a warm and welcoming front man. Now taking more time to write and perform original music, 2020 will see the release of a new album of original music and a tour for Adrian Cox to finally present ‘Adrian Cox.’
“If you were to describe Cox’s playing in one word you might use ‘hot’” – Ricky Riccardi, Director of Research Collections for the Louis Armstrong House Museum, New York.
