Julian Bliss is one of the world’s finest clarinetists, excelling as a concerto soloist, chamber musician, jazz artist, and tireless musical explorer. His passion for the music of Benny Goodman began when Julian was age 7. In 2010, he joined a handpicked selection of some of the best musicians on the jazz scene to form the Julian Bliss Septet. Their exceptional musicianship and stunning showmanship have thrilled audiences worldwide.
“The Julian Bliss Septet and A Tribute to Benny Goodman celebrates not only the virtuoso pioneer of American swing music but captures the vibrant joy of a simple unadorned melody played with feeling and conviction.” Critical Jazz
