Alexander Hawkins is widely recognised as one of the UK’s most innovative and imaginative pianists and composers. Alexander is self-taught with a great love and deep knowledge of the jazz tradition which he brings, along with classical references, to his compositions and improvisations.
Along with his solo performances, he works in a vast array of creative contexts including leading and composing for his Quartet and Ensemble; in duo with South African drum legend Louis Moholo-Moholo and in Moholo’s Blokes; along with his duos with Evan Parker, John Surman, and Sofia Jernberg, and in projects with contemporary leaders - Joe McPhee, Anthony Braxton, Marshall Allen and Ethio-jazz pioneer Mulatu Astatke.
