UK pianist Sarah Tandy was studying English at Cambridge University where immersed herself in jazz in her free time. Upon her return to London, she worked her way into the richly creative music scene and met some key players and future collaborators. Her work with saxophonist Camilla George and SEED Ensemble earned her well-deserved recognition.
For her 2019 debut album, Infection In The Sentence, she drew from this wellspring of talent. Including trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey and bassist Mutale Chashi from the Afrobeat collective Kokoroko, tenor saxophonist Binker Golding (from Binker & Moses), as well as drummer Femi Koleoso from Ezra Collective.
The critics were impressed, and confirmed her growing reputation as a talented keyboardist. All About Jazz called Infection in the Sentence a “deep and striking album” while the Financial Times declared it “brash, outgoing and fluent.”
