Line-up

JULIAN SIEGEL – tenor/soprano sax, bass clarinet
LIAM NOBLE – piano
OLI HAYHURST – double bass
GENE CALDERAZZO – drums

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 Music), saw the release of VISTA, the second album of the Julian Siegel Quartet and the first on the Whirlwind Recordings label. The album features ten of Julian’s compositions plus an arrangement of Bud Powell's ‘Un Poco Loco’. This acoustic set of music moves freely through varied sound worlds and colours, from undercurrents of bop to searching ballads and joyful melodies. Tonight's show at Ronnie Scotts will feature music from the bands albums plus new music written especially for the band's current tour.

Expressive direct music.... tightly wound post-bop, pensive improv. and more.
