Julian Siegel studied sax, clarinet and conducting at UEA, Norwich. Moving to London in 1991 he became known on his second instrument, the double bass. Now established as one of the most in-demand saxophonists on the scene and currently leading his own quartet on a UK tour, he's been involved with some influential British jazz groups and co-leads the inestimable quartet Partisans. A former winner of "Best Instrumentalist" at the BBC Jazz Awards 2007. “Siegel has taken a stride into a different musical league as both a player and a composer...This is a set that, if it doesn’t put Siegel’s name in lights, will certainly crank up the wattage” - John Fordham, Guardian.
