Julian Costello Quartet
8:00pm £10.00 adm


Julian Costello – tenor and soprano saxophones, Patrick Naylor – guitar, Alex Keen - double bass, Milo Fell - drums

The Julian Costello Quartet plays contemporary music that incorporates a range of different grooves, moods and colours, its textures both tuneful and melodic.  Some of the tunes are really structured and scored while others are more free-flowing and left to chance.  Playing tenor and soprano saxophones and composing all the music. Julian sees the group as his heritage to ‘jam’; improvise and see what happens.  The rest of the quartet feature very much as equals rather than as accompanists, and Julian tries to think of his solos as conversations with the rest of the group rather than traditional solos with rhythmic and harmonic accompaniment.  To date the group has released a number of recordings, their most recent being Edge of Distinctionand Cake and Consequences.

Julian Costello – tenor and soprano saxophones

As well as playing the saxophones, Julian Costello composes all the music for the group, and has released four CDs to date; Edge of Distinction(May 2011) Der-Da-Di-Da(2009) Cake and Consequences(2004) and Tea and Scandal(1996).  The Guardian describes him as “left leaning and having a bubbly Charles Lloyd like tone”, and his CDs have been praised in Time Out, Jazz Journal, Jazzwise magazine and Crescendo.  His music has been played on BBC Radio 2 and Jazz FM, with one of his tunes used on a Channel 4 News documentary.  London born and bred, Julian studied at the Trinity College of Music.
