Rob Townsend started playing the sax when he got fed up with carting drums around. A senior lecturer in Jazz at Middlesex University, he has performed with a broad range of leading musicians including Django Bates, Sam Rivers, Iain Ballamy, Mark Lockheart and Bill Bruford. Rob has been a featured soloist with ex Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett for a number of years, touring internationally and recording a number of albums and DVDs. He’s also played on film and TV scores for Oscar-winning composer Stephen Warbeck. "..by turns playful, rhapsodic and irreverent, he injected an almost folksy sensibility into his solos, coaxing sunshine out of the most oblique chord progressions" - James Griffiths, The Guardian.
