Julian Bliss Quintet

Celebrating Benny Goodman, the ‘King of Swing’, The Julian Bliss Quintet brings you the exciting sound of swing from the 30s and 40s. With all new arrangements from vibraphonist Lewis Wright, The Julian Bliss Quintet play great tunes of the swing era, staying true to the authentic feel but with a modern twist.

George Gershwin was a musician who bridged the worlds of jazz and classical music. Enamoured with both genres and convinced that each could bring something to the table, he mastered the art of combining jazz and classical to create his famous signature sound. In this programme, The Julian Bliss Quintet present their unique take on some of Gershwin’s most famous compositions with original arrangements and adaptations.

About Julian Bliss

Julian Bliss is one of the world’s finest clarinettists, excelling as a concerto soloist, chamber musician, recitalist, jazz artist, and masterclass leader.
