Julian Siegel Quartet

20 Feb 2019

Julian Siegel Quartet

Julian Siegel • tenor and soprano saxes, bass clarinet, compositions
Liam Noble • piano
Oli Hayhurst • double bass
Gene Calderazzo • drums

"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

New album 'VISTA' out now on Whirlwind Recordings.

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.

Talinka

15 May 2019

Talinka

Talinka creates a new, distinctive sound that explores the unique and diverse journeys of four British musicians: Jenny Bliss (a baroque virtuoso), Yaron Stavi (one of Europe's leading bass players) Gilad Atzmon (an internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist with an affinity for ethnic sounds) and his wife Tali, whose singing has been paired with her theatrical career.

The music is at times haunting, connecting with deep moody jazz standards and a new international form of World Music. In the process it touches many bases, with its wide-ranging and evocative arrangements, while Tali's perceptive and intelligent lyrics enhance the compositions.

The outcome is a natural breathing, deep and spacious sonic adventure. The unusual choice of instruments and combination of personalities creates an amalgam of past and present, East and West. A natural continuum between ethnic, jazz, tango and Early Music, transcending musical boundaries.

As Jazzwise critic Andy Robson, wrote when reviewing the CD: "There's an airy spaciousness about Talinka's music, a music that is never far from the taste of tears."

When first hearing Tali's debut CD, legendary musician and Soft Machine founder Robert Wyatt commented: "Since hearing Ms Atzmon's discrete contributions to records by Gilad and friends, I've long wished she would make a record revealing her own deeply personal approach to music. And here, at last, is that record."

Tali Atzmon (Vocals), Gilad Atzmon (Bass Clarinet, Soprano Saxophone, Accordion, Guitar), Jenny Bliss (Viola da Gamba, Baroque Violin, Flute, Vocals), Yaron Stavi (Double Bass).

"It seemed there was nothing this enterprising quartet couldn't do to make the most of a wide range of material. The gig also illustrated how live music based on recorded material can sound refreshingly different, even allowing for the absence on this occasion of pianist Frank Harrison, another OHE member. That's jazz." — Nigel Jarrett, Jazz Journal
