Originally from Wales, Alto Saxophonist/Composer Alice Leggett has made her career in London and is currently based in Amsterdam where she is studying for her masters at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. 

During her seven years in London, Alice has played with an array of musicians. She has been a member of projects such as The Calum Gourlay Big Band, Mark Lockheart's 'Days on Earth' (recorded and released on Edition Records 2019) as well as leading her own quintet featuring Rick Simpson, Calum Gourlay and Will Glaser/Jon Scott. Alice has performed in UK venues such as Ronnie Scotts, The Vortex, The Southbank Centre and the Con Cellar Bar as well as playing with her own band for London Jazz Festival and Brecon Jazz Festival. She was also a member of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. 

In 2019, Alice was featured in JazzWise magazine as 'One to Watch' in 2020. 'Young saxophonist and Trinity-Laban graduate Alice Leggett is one to watch. But don’t just take my word for it, Mark Lockheart chose her to play alto in his Days On Earth band, and she’s also a member of Calum Gourlay’s Big Band – case closed. I’m hoping to hear a debut album from her own quartet in 2020.' - Helen Mayhew, Jazz FM.

Alice is currently settling into the Amsterdam jazz scene and is studying with Ben van Gelder, Jasper Blom, Tineke Postma, Simon Rigter and Marc Scholten, among other visiting guest artists.
