Steve Arguelles

Born:

Born in 1963, an anglo-catalan now living in France, Steve Argüelles during his teenage years started his career in England with youth orchestras which were part of the British jazz scene, later joining groups lead by John Taylor, Lee Konitz, Dudu Pukwana and important associations with musicians such as Steve Lacy, Alex Balanescu, Shirley Horn, Hugh Masekela or Ronnie Scott. Together with pianist Django Bates he formed the group `Human Chain’ and they became key figures in the big-band `Loose Tubes’ that during the 80s was a shooting star of young British Jazz. Becoming one of the most in demand drummers in Europe, in 1991 he moved to Paris and began regular collaborations with Benoît Delbecq, Noël Akchoté, Marc Ducret, Corin Curschellas as well as leading a quintet with his brother saxophonist Julian Argüelles

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
