Following an acclaimed tribute album to Benny Goodman, the ‘King of Swing’, the Julian Bliss
Septet returns with a new album that showcases the music of jazz legends, George and Ira
Gershwin, and – by popular demand – some of Benny’s compositions and much-loved tunes.
The Julian Bliss Septet was formed in 2010 and quickly became known for their trademark
inspiring jazz-fuelled shows which have captivated audiences across the globe. Their dazzling
virtuosity, extraordinary musicianship and charming humour shines through their programmes
of swing, Latin, American and jazz music. The band has played at some of the most prestigious
venues and festivals around the world, including the famous Ronnie Scott’s and Wigmore Hall in
London, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Bermuda Jazz Festival and on multiple US tours to
sold-out clubs and concert halls including Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center (New York).
