With the Julian Siegel Music 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.
