Award winning saxophonist Tom Ridout (25) was predicted by Jazzwise Magazine in 2012 as an upcoming jazz musician to watch out for. A recent graduate from the prestigious Royal Academy of Music, recent winner of the Lancaster Jazz Festival Youth Jazz Commission 2018 and a current member of NYJO, Tom is a prolific composer who fronts his own bands playing his original compositions. Last year, Tom released his debut album “No Excuses”, which features a 13 piece band including traditional jazz instrumentation with a string quartet and brass trio.
