In 2010, Julian Bliss – one of the finest clarinetists of our day – joined a handpicked selection of some of the best musicians on the jazz scene to form the Julian Bliss Septet. Since that point, the musicians have explored the music of Benny Goodman and rich world of Latin and American music. Most recently, the Julian Bliss Septet has delved into the treasured Tin Pan Alley sounds of Gershwin and his contemporaries. The well-loved melodies and swinging tunes explore musical stories and are showcased by original arrangements for the septet, including a suite from Porgy and Bess, an excerpt from “Rhapsody in Blue” and the great songs: “I Got Rhythm,” “Embraceable You” and
“Lady Be Good.”
