JULIA Hülsmann and her trio, who for 18 years now have helped shape contemporary jazz in Germany and beyond, play Turner Sims tonight (Friday).

She will be performing music from her latest ECM release Sooner And Later, an album which distils the experience of journeys to distant destinations.

In the last couple of years Hülsmann along with her bassist Marc Muellbauer and drummer Heinrich Köbberling have taken their music around the world, from Europe to the US, Canada, Peru, Central Asia and China. This is poetic and sophisticated jazz, with complex and engaging melodies and intricate harmonies.
