Julian Siegel's new, all-star jazz orchestra tour
Julian Siegel's new, all-star jazz orchestra will be playing as part of a six date tour of the East Midlands this week. Congratulations to Derby Jazz and the EMJAZZ network of promoters for fixing up this.
The music the Orchestra will be playing will feature Julian's new music for Jazz Orchestra, from re-imaginings and expansions of his music for small bands to a new piece commissioned by Derby Jazz specially for this tour. 'TALES FROM THE JACQUARD' draws inspiration from the lacemaking process and the Jacquard cards, which controlled the lace knitting machines. Julian's parents and family ran a lace manufacturing business in Nottingham's lace market for 50 years.
This band will be recorded by BBC Radio 3 fora future JAZZ NOW.
