Description

Award winning saxophonist Julian Siegel strikes gold in this brilliant new quartet album. Unquestionably one of the UK's most dynamic, powerful quartets. Nottingham born, BBC Award-winning multi-reedist, composer and bandleader Julian Siegel is a genuinely world-class musician who has worked with the likes of Hermeto Pascoal, Andrew Hill, Django Bates, Kenny Wheeler, and Mike Gibbs. He is a founder-member of the influential UK Jazz-Rock quartet Partisans with guitarist/composer Phil Robson and since 2007 he has toured and recorded with the Julian Siegel Trio featuring U.S. improvising stars Joey Baron and Greg Cohen, while this his second release on Basho features his superlative quartet. His distinctive, imaginative but always warm sound and his broad tonal range, advanced harmonic ideas and fine compositions have drawn praise from such luminaries as Joe Lovano who described Siegel's trio with Baron and Cohen as "full of music and magic". Drummer Billy Hart praised his "great imagination". In addition, Siegel's Quartet are one the of top UK jazz acts (alongside Basho label mates Kit Downes Trio amongst others) who will tour Germany and Austria 14th-25st March as part of the Brit-Jazz travelling-festival put together by Burkhard Hopper, former manager of the late Esbjorn Svensson. However, it is not just the international stars that are drawn to Siegel's playing. He is a revered figure for the younger generation too, appearing on Empirical's latest MOBO Jazz award winning album 'Out 'n' In' and was asked to produce trumpeter Richard Turner's 'Round Trip' band for their F-IRE Records debut.
