For the ability simultaneously to deliver great subtlety of musical character with both emotional energy and intellectual power, he is one of the very best we have.”

Peter Bacon, Jazzbreakfast

Julian Argüelles Intro

Argüelles has built an impressive reputation for presenting world-standard small-band post-bop that now spans almost three decades. His quartet include some of the UK’s best young talent with Ivo Neame on piano (Phronesis), Sam Lasserson bass and James Maddren drums. The quartet have been likened, in the past, to Keith Jarrett's 1970s European quartet in terms of their level of improvisation and composition. 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”.
