An uplifting album of contrasting originals from one of the most absorbing composers in European jazz.

For his sixth album as a leader and his second for Provocateur Records, saxophonist / composer Julian Argüelles has produced a large-scale work for jazz and classical musicians. Joining him are his regular band - STAN SULZMANN, IAIN DIXON, JIM RATIGAN, MIKE WALKER, STEVE WATTS, MARTIN FRANCE, HENRY LOWTHER - and the 20-piece TRINITY COLLEGE OF MUSIC STRING ENSEMBLE, conducted by NIC PENDLEBURY (John Adams, Steve Reich, David Tannenbaum, English Symphonia etc).

Argüelles' latest work evolved from a commission that was originally performed in Saint Wendreda's Church in the historic East Anglian town of March. Inspired by the tranquil yet constantly evolving Fenlands and the church itself - world famous for the 120 angels carved into its roof (although closer inspection reveals one of these angels to be 'the devil') - Argüelles set out to explore the musical relationship between improvisation and formal structure. The result is a compelling album charged with a wide range of emotional and melodic surprises.

As Above, So Below also confirms Julian Argüelles' reputation as one of the most lyrical, passionate and highly individual musicians to come out of the British jazz scene.

Julian Arguelles (tenor and soprano sax, mouth harp); Stan Sulzmann (flute, alto flute); Lain Dixon (clarinet, bass clarinet); Henry Lowther (trumpet, flugelhorn); Jim Rattigan (French Horn); Mike Walker (guitars); Steve Watts (double bass); Martin France (drums); Trinity College of Music String Ensemble
