Zoltan Sagi

Born in Hungary, Zoltan attended the Guildhall School of Music studying clarinet with Robert Earle and later Frank Allen (CBSO) at Warwick University. He is completely self taught on saxophone drawing much inspiration particularly from Johnny Hodges, Cannonball Adderley and Stan Getz . Zoltan spent his early professional playing career in dance bands and in the New Orleans jazz genre performing at festivals both here and abroad. After this came a period of success in the field of music education becoming both a Director of Music and a county music service manager. A return to professional playing saw a 21/2 year stint with Chris Barber touring the world extensively. He has made numerous C.D's, and other recordings as a freelance session musician and has also appeared with such musicians as Earl Warren (ex Count Basie), Benny Waters, Kenny Davern, Bob Wilber, Humphrey Lyttleton, Roy Williams, Bruce Turner, Marty Grosz, Digby Fairweather, Duncan Swift, Bruce Adams, Greg Abate (ex Ray Charles) etc. Zoltan has played with Harlem, Swing Syndicate, Pasadena Roof Orchestra, Kenny Ball and The Charleston Chasers. Currently he can be seen with his own quartet, The Sticky Wicket Band and the Stars of British Jazz. As a composer Zoltan has written soundtracks for such clients as Cadburys, Samsung U.K., Powergen and Severn Trent.
