This month’s Hermon Jazz is proud to host Vertigo Trio, a newly formed group of musicians from the U.K., Canada and Greece led by soprano saxophonist, composer and tutor Julian Costello.
‘Julian Costello is a sax lyricist, telling his stories of life’s ups and downs with perfect alteration of tone to impart strength, humour and even frailty at times whilst the other players intuitively alter their stances, apart from their solo passages, where their inner nature springs to the fore.’ – Sammy Stein for Jazz in Europe
‘…full of warmth and humanity,…..inventive soloing.’ – Bruce Lindsay for All About Jazz
Vertigo brings together the various musical and cultural backgrounds of its members in a kaleidoscope of rhythmic and melodic textures inspired by sounds from India, North Africa and Europe. The collective’s original compositions have a cinematic quality infused with spontaneous improvisations. With the unusual combination of soprano saxophone, oud and tabla, this trio cuts out a distinct niche for itself performing a spicy mix of Indian and Turkish inspired melodies and grooves laced with a Western approach to improvisation.
Julian Costello – soprano saxophone
Stefanos Tsourelis – oud, guitar
Adam Teixeira – tabla, percussion
