About Julian, the lovely chap who heads up the trio....
"His beautiful and creative playing makes Julian one of my favourite saxophonists" - Bobby Wellins
"One of my real faves" - Iain Ballamy
"One of the UK's finest saxophonists" - Jazz Views
A member of legendary bands "Loose Tubes" and "Brotherhood Of Breath", Julian has also made a speciality out of playing with great singers - Claire Martin, Liane Carroll, Carleen Anderson and Imogen Ryall, Jimmy Witherspoon and Joe Lee Wilson among them! He plays across all styles on all the saxophones, crediting Brits Tony Coe, Don Rendell and Bobby Wellins as his tutors.
He has received 4-star reviews on all three of his recent releases, including a "Top Ten 2019" from Peter Quinn for Anöna Trio's 'One January Morning'.
