Reviews

Alex has been called the 'Scottish Grappelli'!
And he performs with that same infectious, intoxicating swing style and melodic inventiveness. The music is sophisticated, and exciting, capturing the imagination of audiences wherever he appears. His world class group features Alex on violin, virtuoso guitarist Ged Brockie, Mike Nisbet on acoustic guitar and Ed Kelly on double bass.

The Scotsman

He is little short of masterful - his tone and phrasing are out of the top drawer.

Edinburgh International Jazz Festival

The most exciting instrumental lineup in years

Shetland International Music Festival

This group wowed the crowd with the dazzling virtuosity of their playing

Expect worldclass for that is what you will get!

Edinburgh International Jazz Festival

Alex Yellowlees' style is reminiscent of the late Stephane Grappelli and he performs with much of the French maestro's melodic inventiveness.

Orkney Arts Festival

The Hot Club mix elegance and passion in a swinging jazz performance! Jazz violinists are a pretty rare breed with considerable technical and stylistic problems to master - yet Alex Yellowlees made it seem easy! His grace and agility were unmistakable and his finely crafted solos were a highlight of the evening. Nigel Clark displays an astonishing level of virtuosity!

Edinburgh International Festival Fringe

Brilliant, don't miss them!

Edinburgh Evening News

What is not in dispute is his wonderful way with a violin. This man is easily as good a performer as Joe Venuti or Stephane Grappelli - meaning that he is not only instinctive in his playing, but also highly creative.

Perthshire Advertiser

Seeing the sub-title 'acoustic jazz at its best' made me wary, but the worries were soon blown away by Alex's playing which can only be described as phenomenal.
