Charlotte Glasson specialises in weaving together sounds from across the globe to create a brand of music defined by rhythm and melody, a world of bird call and sunshine. She is an amazing talent and the band are superb. She is a multi instrumentalist, playing all the saxophones, flutes, clarinet, bass clarinet, violin and viola, penny whistle, melodica, percussion, and even the saw in Lost and Found Orchestra.
Equally at home playing jazz, classical music, blues, soul, funk, Latin, country and everything in between she’s kept very busy on the music scene. Currently, Charlotte leads her own group, the Charlotte Glasson Band, who perform her own original compositions along with those of the band. She is a member of Three Friends , a progressive rock band who perform the music of Gentle Giant, and has been a regular of the cast for The Lost and Found Orchestra. Featuring at Love Supreme Festival, and at this year’s Brighton Fringe festival, Charlotte joined the band of Camille O’Sullivan. An active session musician and composer for numerous films, she has also composed music for an Art Installation at the Ashmoleon museum in Oxford, and performed at the Love Supreme Jazz Festival, Brighton.
As a session musician Charlotte has worked with Oasis, Julian Lloyd Webber, PJ Proby, Claire Martin, The Lost and Found Orchestra, Jim Mullen, Alan Barnes, Big Band Metheny, Bobby Matos, Heather Cornell, Guy Massey, Steve Power, Nigel Godrich, Spike Stent, Bill Laswell, and Ian Hamer…
What they say: “A touch of the Hot Club De France, a hint of Coltrane, echoes of McKinney’s Cotton Pickers, a theme that comes could have come from the Jazz Messengers – all jazz history is there! Great fun”
‘Charlotte Glasson’s improvisation with a loop box and a host of instruments (and a saw!) was stunning and mesmerising.’ The Evening Argus
