Product Description

Product Description

This CD is the long awaited live sessions recorded at the Vortex in London in January 2007 during a sell-out tour of the UK, which proved hugely popular with both audiences and press. The trio originally came together as a result of a major commission from the Cheltenham International Jazz Festival in 2006, but has developed into a real meeting of musical minds who enjoy each other's company. Siegel and the ace downtown New York rhythm section of Greg Cohen (double bass) and Joey Baron (drums) create real fireworks and provide a perfect setting for fresh improvisations and great dialogue between the musicians, who between them share an impressive CV. To celebrate the release, the trio will tour the UK again in January 2009. Julian Siegel received the award for Best Instrumentalist in the 2007 BBC Jazz Awards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beelzebop 1 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
This CD has got to be one of the best that I own, and believe me I do have a lot of jazz CD's. I listen to everything, there are no boundary's, I am a Jazz musician. If I was to loose or damage this CD I would buy it again without hesitation,it qualifies as a must have! The interaction between all three musicians is top notch, inventive and fun to listen to. There are strong melody lines,which take time to get to know but are worth the effort and are not too repetitive. Julian Siegel has made an inspired choice by inviting Joey Baron and Greg Cohen to play this music and I for one hope that this is not there only collaboration...Buy with confidence and enjoy.

A great piece of contemporary live jazz improvisation. Having come to jazz over the last 10 years, I had pretty much given up on hearing anything made after about 1968 that wasn't a turn off. But Julian Siegel Live At The Vortex is a modern, new, and vibrant update on the great hard-bop/avant-garde sax players like Sonny Rollins or Jackie McLean - fiercely original, but you can still hear the blues roots clearly. Worth the price for the great twisting and turning around the familiar tune of Ray Charles's 'One Mint Julep' alone
