ECM recording artist Iain Ballamy is an internationally recognised saxophonist and composer who has been variously described as urbane, original, freethinking and uncompromising.
Listed in the BBC’s publication ‘100 Jazz Greats’ between Count Basie and Chet Baker, Ballamy’s work is contemporary with both strong jazz and classical references and yet un-encumbered by formality and tradition.
Over three decades spent transcending musical genres and stereotypes and by forging strong and ongoing relationships with musicians around the globe, Ballamy has worked with many cutting-edge figures of today’s contemporary Jazz scene.
Ballamy was presented with the BBC Jazz Award for Innovation in 2001.
As a composer, Ballamy has written soundtracks for two movies directed by Dave McKean, ‘Luna’ and ‘Mirrormask’, the later produced and released worldwide by the Jim Henson Company.
In 2007 Ballamy was the first Jazz musician to receive the prestigious Paul Hamlyn composer’s award.
