Saxophonist Julian Arguelles has been making waves on the UK jazz scene since the days of Loose Tubes back in the mid-80$, and his own projects, ranging from solo saxophone-with-e|ectronics through to his excellent octet, have been consistently rewarding. Last year, the jazz festival threw him together with American pianist George Colligan, and the resulting quartet gig at Henry’s was one of the real highlights of the event, blending European and American influences in compelling fashion. On the sound principle that you can’t really have too much of a

good thing, Julian is reunited with the pianist for a second round of creative transatlantic action. Part of the Bank Of Scotland Edinburgh Jazz

and Blues Festival.
