Experience

Ashley Bonfante
Saxophonist, Composer, Educator

Born in London, England, Ashley Bonfante showed enthusiasm for music at an early age, playing the cello, clarinet and saxophone at school and for local youth programmes. It soon became clear, however, that it was on the saxophone that Ashley would excel and at the age of 14 he was chosen to perform alongside internationally renowned jazz violinist, Chris Garrickat the Royal Albert Hall in collaboration with Harrow Young Musicians.

Ashley successfully applied to the Junior Guildhall School of music in London soon after his 15th birthday. Working with artists such as Jefferey Wilson, Olllie Weston and Victoria Soames Samek allowed him to further his understanding of the saxophone and develop his general musicianship over the next couple of years.

In 2009 Ashley moved to Birmingham to study for his undergraduate degree in Jazz (Bmus Hons). During his time at the Birmingham Conservatoire, Ashley has been lucky enough to perform and work with artists such as Jeff Ballard (drums), George Colligan (piano), Mark Turner (saxophone), Mike Williams (saxophone), Hans Koller (composition/piano), Percy Pursglove (trumpet/bass), Andrew Bain (drums), Jean Toussaint (saxophone), Julian Arguelles (saxophone), Iain Dixon (saxophone), Arnie Somogyi (bass) and John Taylor (piano).

Having graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with honours, Ashley is an active member of the UK jazz scene, consistently working with local musicians on new projects whilst hosting various residencies around the country. Aside from his current free-lance and teaching responsibilities, Ashley has been working with local musicians Mark Pringle (piano), Benedict Muirhead (bass) and Euan Palmer (drums) on his debut album Ashley Bonfante Quartet which was released to much acclaim in June 2015.

Ashley spent 2016-17 in Paris forming collaborative musical projects with artists from Paris and New York alike. During his stay he performed in renowned jazz clubs such as Cave du Riv 38, Sunset-Sunside, Madame Louis, Le Baiser Salé and Péniche Le Marcounet.
