I have followed Julian’s progress since he was a boy . Every time I hear him he gets better and better . I can hear his influences, but, with his beautiful delicate sound and perfect time, he really is ‘his own man’. With this album Julian has really arrived !
"Blues for the Morning After" - Julian Marc Stringle and The Dream Band featuring: Julian Marc Stringle - Clarinet and Vocals, Neil Angilley - Keyboards, Dominic Ashworth - Guitars, Rufus Philpot - Bass, Mike Bradley - Drums and Gary Hammond - Percussion. Many plaudits deem this to be the most refreshing and melodic modern clarinet album ever produced in Europe.
Reviews for this album:
"Elegant, masterful clarinet playing"
- Tony Coe
"Julian is an immense talent! Probably the best clarinettist to emerge in British jazz for several decades. His performance has 'world class' written all over it. Julian has given a much neglected instrument a truly new lease of life."
- John Dankworth CBE
"Excellent musicians, excellent arrangements, Julian is blowing great as usual - terrific stuff!"
- Acker Bilk MBE
"Julian is now one of the world's great clarinet players - right up there with Eddie Daniels!"
- Jim Mullen
"A wonderful talent, a marvellous clarinettist. In my eyes he's a jazz great already. The CD is super! Congratulations Jules."
