Another former BBC Young Musician of the Year, Julian Bliss formed his septet in 2010 – a group now renowned for bringing the sound of swing, Latin, American and jazz music to audiences across the world. The septet, all exceptional solo musicians in their own right, transport listeners back to the heady days of classic swing and jazz through their entertaining, innately musical playing and dazzling shows of virtuosity.

The ensemble has played at the famous Ronnie Scott’s, the Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Bermuda Jazz Festival on two US tours delighting audiences with their uplifting and humorous shows.

For his long-awaited return to Petworth, Julian Bliss and his septet partners perform a selection of original arrangements including music from Porgy and Bess, the dazzling Rhapsody in Blue and popular favourites I Got Rhythm, Embraceable You and Lady Be Good – in so doing ensuring that the audience of today continues to find these classics as entertaining, enjoyable and surprising as ever.
