Toby Delius | Back
Tenor Saxophone & Clarinet

Tobias (Toby) Delius was actually born in Oxford in 1964, but virtually the whole of his career as a musician has been forged in mainland Europe (although while still in his teens he spent a year in Mexico City, playing in the 'Cuarteto Mexicano de Jazz').
In 1984 he moved to the Netherlands, and within a short time was immersed in the idiosyncratic Amsterdam scene, an ideal context for his combination of melodic impetus and improvisational freedom. Although now based in Berlin, he retains his Dutch connections, being a key member of the ICP (Instant Composers Pool) and working in smaller groups with such prominent artists as Han Bennink, Wilbert de Joode and Eric Boeren.
