Julian Siegel Jazz Orchestra | Tales From The Jacquard


Join us as BBC Jazz Award winning saxophonist Julian Siegel celebrates his acclaimed album Tales from the Jacquard.

The Julian Siegel Jazz Orchestra features some of Julian’s favourite musicians from the UK and European scenes. This is a rare opportunity to see this handpicked, stellar line-up perform together.

The band perform the suite Tales from the Jacquard, commissioned by Derby Jazz and composed especially for them. Tales from the Jacquard draws inspiration from the lace-making process and the Jacquard cards, which controlled the lace knitting machines. (Julian’s parents and family ran a lace manufacturing business in Nottingham for over 50 years).

The concert also features Julian’s arrangements of music written for small band, and new compositions written for this tour.
