Julian Costello Saxophonist / Composer / Educator lives in London with his crazy but lovely family of teenagers and he tries to approach life with humour. Jazz in Europe says;
“Julian Costello is a sax lyricist, telling his stories of life’s ups and downs ... to impart strength, humour and even frailty” "There's a sense of graceful lyricism, combined with an inner strength, in the playing of tenor and soprano saxophonist Julian Costello........Costello's improvising is carefully crafted, beauifully structured, and mellow” said John Watson.
"Beautiful Music" Chris Philips Jazz FM
As well as playing and writing music Julian is a teacher, something he really enjoys.

“Once in a while, an album like this appears on the horizon, becoming the unputdownable “Earworm” that Costello portrays at the heart of his colourful recording”. Adrian Pallant London Jazz News.
