Saxophonist SAX12

Sax12 is a Saxophonist from the UK with a big sound and a very melodic improviser from the post bop period. His influences include John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Hank Mobley, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz, Micheal Brecker. Norman has performed with many top UK jazz names including Alan Barnes, Mornington Lockett, Gary Plumley, Nick Weldon, Jeff Clyne.

Born in Newport Isle Of Wight he was inspired to take up the saxophone at the age of 12 after going to watch his father play Saxophone at local gigs around the Isle of Wight. His father taught him the basics of saxophone playing for the first few years

SAX12 then taught himself to improvise by ear just by playing and listening to recordings. He was doing local jazz gigs around the Isle of Wight.

He was nominated for the Young Jazz musician of the year regional finals in 1999 and although he did not win he decided to devote his study to music. He graduated from Middlesex University in 2003 after obtaining a 2.1 BA Honors’ in Jazz music. He then based himself in the South of England teaching privately and live performance.

In 2006 SAX12 decided to go travelling to Thailand. He took a break from practicing the Sax and studied Flute whilst travelling around the country for 3 months. He found work in Bangkok and has played at many jazz clubs all over the city including The Bamboo Bar, The Living Room at the Shereton Grande, The Sirrroco, Nius jazz club The Brown Sugar Jazz Club and Saxophone Bar. He also performed regularly with Bangkok International Big Band.

At the end of 2006 he relocated to the Island Koh Samui. He worked at the awarding winning 5 star resort of Six Senses Hideaway for two and a half years and recorded an album "Samui Surprise" with New York guitarist Barry Wedgle. He began studying the Flute and although he had one lesson in the UK he has taught himself and plays with depth and maturity.

SAX12 returned to Bangkok briefly for a year to work around the city he also taught private woodwind lessons at New International School and Shrewsbury International schools in Bangkok. .

He returned to Koh Samui in 2011 until 2014 where he was working at some of the top 5 star resorts on the Island including the Tongsai Bay, Napasai Resort, Rocky's Boutique Resort.

He has finally returned to the UK and is currently based on the west coast of Scotland as a freelance musician.
