Julie Sassoon, Willi Kellers: Waves

Read "Waves" reviewed by John Eyles

Although pianist Julie Sassoon's first recording—the trio Azilut!'s To the Power of Three (Babel)—was released in 2001, the intervening years have not seen a stream of albums from her; in fact, her releases to date can be counted on two hands. However, in Sassoon's case quantity is far less important than the variety and quality of ...

Julie Sassoon: Fourtune

Read "Fourtune" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Fourtune is British pianist-composer Julie Sassoon's first quartet recording. Sassoon's musical approach draws in equal measure on her classical training and on a love of jazz and improvised music.

Julie Sassoon: Land Of Shadows

Read "Land Of Shadows" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Land Of Shadows, the second album from British pianist Julie Sassoon, is a striking work. A mix of the simple and complex, gentle and strident, dark and light, it's powerful and affecting.

After studying in the UK Sassoon moved to Germany in 2009. Recorded live in Cologne, Dessau and the Neue Synagoge Berlin during April ...

Julie Sassoon: Dancing in the Shadows

Read "Julie Sassoon: Dancing in the Shadows" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Since then, she and her family have moved to Berlin and Sassoon has quietly established herself in Germany as an unusual and unique talent.
