ONE of Europe’s finest jazz musicians will be appearing live in Welwyn Garden City this weekend.
The Julian Arguelles Quartet plays Herts Jazz Club at Campus West on Sunday from 7.45pm.
Tenor Julian has recently completed four hugely successful years as part of the world renowned Frankfurt Radio Big Band and as a soloist regularly performs with internationally celebrated musicians, including Hermeto Pascoal, Steve Swallow, John Abercrombie, Dave Holland, Dave Liebman, Peter Erskine, Django Bates, John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler and Carla Bley.
At the age of 14, Julian began touring with the European Community Big Band.
He quickly gained recognition as a highly original talent and in 1985 he went on to join the now legendary 21-piece UK big band Loose Tubes, performing with them for four years and appearing on two albums.
In 1986, Julian was awarded the prestigious Pat Smythe award for young musicians.
Joining Julian in WGC will be Kit Downes on piano, Sam Lasserson on bass and James Maddren on drums.
“We’re honoured to have him and his excellent quartet at our venue,” said a Herts Jazz spokesman.
Tickets for the concert cost £11 if booked online, £13 at the door, £8 for members and just £5 for students and under-21s. Book online at www.hawthornetheatre.co.uk
