"Siegel'wailing, swerving lines burst with character" - John Fordham, The Guardian

Julian Siegel is an in-demand saxophonist on the British and European Jazz scene. He has played with the best, and has co-led the influential group Partisans with guitarist Phil Robson for the last eighteen years. In 2007, Julian was awarded the BBC Jazz Award for Best Instrumentalist; in 2011, the Julian Siegel Quartet won the Jazz Award in the London Festival Fringe Awards for Art and Performance; in 2017, the Quartet was awarded a prestigious showcase at the JazzAhead Festival in Bremen.

"Julian Siegel, the classically trained multi-instrumentalist who in the 90's blossomed into one of Europe's leading jazz player-composers, plays most reed instruments ... but he approaches the tenor saxophone with a special forensic aplomb" - John Fordham

Liam Noble has been described as "a brilliant pianist who hardly plays a solo without at least one turn of phrase that brings you to the edge of your seat" - John Fordham, The Guardian.

Oli Hayhurst has a beautiful, warm tone on the bass and plays melodically, underpinned by a driving rhythmic feel. He has been one of the busiest bass players on the London jazz scene.

Gene Calderazzo has played with an exhaustive list of top jazz musicians. His "time and energy creates an excitement similar to a young Tony Williams" = Stan Sulzman.
