We're all really excited about this brand new project. We've done a rehearsal and it sounded pretty cool.

We're playing the classic Brubeck like Take 5 , Blue Rondo Ala Turk, Unsquare Dance etc and some less well known but equally excellent Brubeck charts plus a few of ours in the first set.

Entrance just £5 Thursday 21st April 8pm Barrel House Totnes

I am really pleased to say that I am going to run another 8 weej jazz course this autumn on 8 Mon nights with a gig at the end of it on a Sunday evening.

Attached is a flier for the course. If you are wanting to book a place please get in touch with Charlie asap (especially if you are a horn player) as places sometimes go quickly on 01803 865917 or charlielowe@gmail.com. Any questions about the music get in contact with me. I intend to do up to about 6 great tunes through the course looking at many different aspects within those tunes.

Hi and thanks for stopping by!!


Music has been with me since early childhood. I feel very privileged to be able to earn my living as a musician.


As is the way with the arts, I do a number of different disciplines within music. I play soprano, alto, and tenor saxes and clarinet professionally. I teach clarinet, saxophone,jazz improvisation (all instruments) and music theory as well as running various groups including a big band, jazz bands, a clarinet group and workshops (usually with a improvisational slant). I also regularly arrange and compose and partake in quite a bit of band leading. My influences and interests lie primarily in jazz and classical music, but I also love working with salsa, funk, soul, motown, blues and more. Oh and by the way, I read music, play by ear and improvise to a high standard.


This site should explain everything. Look around check me out and if you want to know more, get in touch. If you want to see me live, or check my availability, you can check out my public gig calendar...Here, or my availability calendar...Here.
