Julian Siegel

the BBC Jazz Award winning saxophonist with the Julian Siegel Quartet.
time:18:00
price: Early Bird £15.50 / Student Ticket £13.50

Information:

With the Julian Siegel Quartet, the BBC Jazz Award winning saxophonist and composer Julian Siegel has chosen to work with some of this generation’s most distinctive voices to create an in-demand Quartet on the UK and European Jazz scene. The band features inspirational pianist Liam Noble, his fluid touch and dazzling imagination perfectly complementing Siegel’s music and playing, and providing a perfect foil for the many directions the music can turn. With the creative spark of dynamic drummer Gene Calderazzo and the deep groove of bassist Oli Hayhurst dove-tailing perfectly with Siegel and Noble this is unquestionably one of the UK’s most exciting and powerful quartets. Following up from their London Jazz Award winning album 'Urban Theme Park' (Basho 2011) the band released their second album 'VISTA' in February 2018 on Whirlwind Recordings. Recorded at Livingston Studios, London it features ten of Julian’s compositions plus an arrangement of Bud Powell's ‘Un Poco Loco’. This new acoustic set of music moves freely through varied sound worlds and colours, from undercurrents of bop to searching ballads and joyful melodies.

“When the Julian Siegel Quartet perform live it’s a fantastic ride” - Jez Nelson, BBC Radio Jazz on 3

“Expressive direct music.... tightly wound post-bop, pensive improv and more” John Fordham, The Guardian

"A world class saxophonist" - Jazz UK (on Julian Seigel).

"...A brilliant pianist...who hardly plays a solo without at least one turn of phrase that brings you to the edge of your seat" John Fordham, The Guardian (on Liam Nobel)

“Oli Hayhurst’s double bass plays a crucial part in leading the melody and setting the mood.” Manchester Evening News

“Was there ever a drummer who combined power and subtlety the way Gene Calderazzo does? He anticipates everything, he shapes the events. He stimulates and guides the soloists. He is there in every sense of the word.” - Steve Gray, composer and arranger 2002



Line up:

Julian Siegel - tenor and soprano saxes, bass clarinet, compositions

Liam Noble - piano

Oli Hayhurst - double bass

Gene Calderazzo - drums
