One of the most exciting groups in jazz today

Sat 21 November, 7.30pm

Lancaster Jazz Festival and More Music present


Support from the Steels/ Bartholomew Quartet

Since their formation in 1996, Partisans have been thrilling audiences with their ferociously energetic performances and is co-led by two pre-eminent musicians of their generation, Phil Robson (guitar) and Julian Siegel (sax, clarinet). The quartet's line-up is completed by Thaddeus Kelly (bass) and Gene Calderazzo (drums). The lyrical and melodic compositions written by the leaders provide the framework and starting point, underpinned by the rock solid, freewheeling and supercharged rhythm section. Partisans are a real band, with a cult following in their native UK, years of performances around the globe & are hailed as having broken the ground for the new wave of British jazz! They released their 5th critically acclaimed album, 'Swamp', in the summer of 2014 on Whirlwind Records, toured North America in June ’14 & more recently appeared at the EFG London Jazz festival, Tampere Jazz Happening in Finland as well as a UK tour.
