Memories of you

Recreating the exciting sound of swing from the 30s and 40s, Julian Bliss leads his sextet through some of the great tunes of the swing era, staying true to the authentic feel but with a modern twist. Julian became enamoured with the performances of Benny Goodman at the age of seven, and in 2010 decided to form a group to perform Goodman's music. The album 'A Tribute to Benny Goodman' was recorded in 2011 and released on Signum Records in June 2012 to critical acclaim from both jazz and classical reviewers.

Julian will offer an unbiased point of view about the work of Benny Goodman, talking the audience through the music and sharing anecdotes and stories about Goodmans' life, all delivered with humour.
