Birmingham Jazz presents…

Another night of quality music guaranteed.

One of the finest jazz musicians in the country will be presented by Birmingham Jazz at the Red Lion in the Jewellery Quarter this Friday, 15th July.

With his Quartet, Julian Siegel has chosen to work with some of this generation’s most distinctive voices to create a group that is becoming one of the most in-demand quartets on the UK 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.

The music the band plays moves freely through varied sound-worlds and colours, from undercurrents of bop into electro-acoustic trance, from an acoustic quartet playing early-electric Miles to dancing West African drum grooves, searching ballads and joyful melodies. The Julian Siegel Quartet was one of the top UK jazz acts that toured Germany and Austria in March 2011 as part of the Brit Jazz travelling festival in which six of Britain’s most exciting and forward-thinking bands descended on Germany and Austria, performing 76 gigs over a period of two weeks.

The Julian Siegel Quartet play the Red Lion, Warstone Lane, on Friday 15th July 2016 7.45pm. Admission £12.50, members £10, students £5
