The debut release we'd all been waiting for
The jazz scene in 1990s Manchester was incredibly influential for the development of modern British jazz, and Chip Wickham was right there at the forefront. Over more than 25 years he has toured, written and recorded with artists like Nat Birchall and Matthew Halsall - fellow Mancunians - and Dwight Tribble, Graham Massey and Badly Drawn Boy. A talented flautist and saxophonist, Chip Wickham's jazz education has led him to explore all areas of the genre, from classic to soul jazz, hard-bop to funk. He's a true master of his craft, something that was displayed all too clearly when he finally released his debut solo album in 2017. Entitled 'La Sombra', it was a nod to the years that Chip Wickham has spent living in Spain and took listeners on a mellifluous journey through both the history of jazz and the musical development of this extraordinary artist. 2018 saw Chip Wickham's new album, 'Shamal Wind', provide us with more of the same stunning material as the saxophonist delved deeper into the spiritual, musical and geographical journeys he's been on.
