Saxophonist and composer Matt Anderson released his debut album with his band Wild Flower in 2015 on the Jellymould Jazz label to widespread critical acclaim and airplay on BBC Radio 3 alongside a 13-date UK tour and launch gig at Pizza Express Dean Street, London.

Since then he has released his debut album to critical acclaim, with glowing reviews in the likes of The Guardian, Guitarist magazine and Jazzwise magazine. His 24-date album-release tour was supported by Arts Council England and included performances at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and Pizza Express Dean Street. His profile has grown steadily to the forefront of capital's jazz scene and he regularly performs in the bands of many highly regarded musicians and band leaders in London, as well as with the world-renowned CBSO.
