Julian Joseph. Rhapsody in Blue

12/07/2024    19.00
Concert Garden “Pūt, vējiņi!”

Julian Joseph is one of the finest, most influential and highly respected musicians in British jazz today. Devoting his career to championing the music across the UK and into the far corners of the world, he has forged a reputation beyond his formidable skills as a performer and composer to become universally recognised as a highly knowledgeable and engaging broadcaster, musical ambassador and cultural advocate.

Julian’s career has been characterised by many ground-breaking advances. He was the first Black British jazz musician to host a series of concerts at London’s Wigmore Hall, and the first to headline a late-night televised performance at the BBC Proms with his All Star Big Band.

As well as performing, composing, recording, teaching and broadcasting, Julian has also turned to writing, publishing his first book, Music of Initiative, in 2018, in which he shares unique insights into the philosophy and practice of jazz performance.

Joseph founded the Julian Joseph Jazz Academy in January 2013 in London. In the 2018 Queen's Birthday Honours list he was appointed an OBE for services to music.
