Julian Argüelles Tetra in Leeds

Julian Argüelles Tetra
Seven, Leeds
Saturday 1st September 2018, £5.00

The headline festival act @Seven Arts on Saturday 1 Sept 8pm is the quartet  led by saxophonist Julian Argüelles. With an impressive reputation for presenting world-standard post-bop that now spans three decades, Argüelles’ current quartet features the UK’s best young talent namely; Ivo Neame (p), Sam Lasserson (b), James Maddren (d). Currently on tour promoting his 15th CD as a leader, “Tonadas” (on Edition), which features strong musical influences from Argüelles’ Spanish roots. The Quartet are inspiring & adventurous and come highly recommended to anyone who gets pleasure from listening to music: jazz or otherwise. Argüelles has been described as a composite of Charles Lloyd and Wayne Shorter. Throw in comparisons to that of Holst, Elgar and Finzi, some Spanish folk and South African grooves, and you pretty much have the makings of “a joyous listening experience”.Support is from Alice Higgins and “Tiptoe” one of Jazz North’s “Northern Line” featured bands with  Alice on vocals, Will Blackstone trumpet, Conall Mulvenna guitar and Roz MacDonald double bass. Vocalist Alice Higgins with an intimate trumpet-guitar-string bass group playing fresh swinging perspectives of the music of Ella Fitzgerald to  Michael Jackson, as well as their own songs in a warm, relaxed vein.We have a late afternoon jazz masterclass @Seven Arts (5-6pm) led by Julian Argüelles. (free to those with tickets for the concert)
