Amanda Sedgwick Quartet

Amanda Sedgwick has worked as a musician, composer and leader of her own groups in Sweden, Holland and the US for twenty years. She has four records under her name that, apart from her saxophone work, also feature her compositions: ”Volt”, ”Reunion”, ”Delightness” and “Shadow And Act”.

Down through the years Amanda has played with, among many others, Rolf Ericson, Freddie Redd, Walter Booker, Leroy Williams, Deborah Brown, Hotep Galeta, Jeremy Pelt, Jimmy Wormworth, Sacha Perry, Dwayne Clemons and Michael Weiss.

She has taught at Morehouse College and currently teaches at the Royal University College of Music in Stockholm, where she presently resides. She makes annual visits to New York City, where she can at times be heard at jazz club Smalls, with musicians such as Michael Weiss, Sacha Perry, Jimmy Wormworth, Tardo Hammer and Dwayne Clemons. She leads her own quintet, also with Dwayne Clemons on trumpet, and can also be heard with the sextet Bird’s Nest.

As a sideperson, Amanda’s alto playing is featured with the Swedish Radio Jazz Group (Radiojazzgruppen), The Blue House Jazz Orchestra (at the Stockholm Concert Hall), Kustbandet (playing 20’s and swing music) and numerous smaller Swedish jazz groups. Since 2014 Amanda has worked with British singer Georgie Fame, touring with him extensively throughout Sweden.

Amanda is the recipient of several grants and awards, from private donors and from the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, the latest in 2019 from the city of Stockholm.

In 2018 her composition “Faces Of Spring”, a longer work for jazz group and string quartet, was featured with three other jazz composers at Jazz Club Fasching in Stockholm. The concert was broadcasted by the Swedish National Radio and EBU and the project was funded by the Swedish Arts Council.
