A night of smooth jazz and soul! Saxophone TV star Julian Smith joins the Tom Morgan trio for a night of smooth jazz & popular tunes. The trio perform their takes on some classic soul/jazz music and are lead to the final performance by the beautifully lyrical playing of Julian’s alto sax.

With millions of YouTube hits online, private performances, Corporate events, High profile Wedding Engagements, Theatre tours and Cruise ship bookings he has been kept him very busy for the last decade.

Fulfilling a dream, he not only got to meet his biggest inspiration Kenny G, but also perform with him along with his all American band at the Royal Albert Hall. On this day his idol presented him with a signed saxophone just to make the occasion even more special.

With seven albums to his name, Julian has recorded duets with the late great Acker Bilk, Dina Carroll and Blake. Julian Smith’s music is a perfect way to open any event. Surprising everyone with his incredible sound, which audiences only realise is live when he appears in front of them (when performing with a roaming wireless microphone), it creates even more of an impact when he gets up close and personal with excited guests.

Julian has performed for Royalty including Prince Charles and also had an invitation to perform at Number 10 Downing Street.
