Sam gained a place in the Royal Academy of Music’s Junior Jazz band, directed by respected educator Nick Smart. So the pathways of Eagles’ musical career had begun to be mapped out, he was tutored by Grammy Award-winning, US-born saxophonist and former Jazz Messenger, Jean Toussaint, as well as studying under other jazz luminaries including Russell van den Berg, Jason Yarde, Mark Lockheart and Simon Purcell. Now, surrounding himself with some of British jazz’s present-day torch bearers – the saxophonist has set out with exciting new sextet project Spirit, whose debut album of original material – Ask Seek Knock – was recently released on the Whirlwind label in July 2017, with longtime supporter Jean Toussaint guesting.
