Julian Siegel Quartet
The Whiskey Jar
With his quartet, the BBC Jazz Award-winning saxophonist and composer Julian Siegel has chosen to work with some of this generation’s most distinctive voices.
Recorded at London’s Livingston Studios, the band’s recent 2018 album VISTA 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 soundworlds 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
“Exciting, dynamic music with improvisation at its centre.” London Jazz News
