“a gutsy tenor and baritone saxophonist who also sings with the earthy gusto of an R&B diva filtered through a hard bop sensibility.” – Jazz Times

For the past twenty years with four albums as a leader, several studio projects as a side man, and countless worldwide performances, saxophonist, vocalist and composer Juli Wood has established herself as a soli, swinging, lyrical and entertaining performer on Chicago’s music scene.  Juli has played many jazz clubs and festivals nationally and internationally; Chicago Jazz Fest, Hyde Park Jazz Fest, Milwaukee’s Summeriest, Chicago’s main jazz clubs – Jazz Showcase, Green Mill, Andy’s and Katerina’s. Skansen Jazz and Blues (Stockholm , Sweden), Pori Jazz Fest (Finland), Bent J’s club (Aarhus, Denmark), Storyville (Helsinki Finland), Arlandia Jazz Fest (Aaland Islands, Finland) to name a few.

Juli is in the tradition of saxophonists who were also great vocalists; Cleanhead Vincent, Eddie Harris, and Louis Jordan.

Juli’s latest recording, Synkkä Metsä, is of Finnish folk songs. “My grandparents all came from Finland to the USA in the early 1900’s. I grew up hearing the music and my parents taught me a little of the Finnish language. I was on one of my yearly trips to Finland  to play a few festivals and clubs, and  was listening to Art Farmer’s recording of Swedish folk songs called To Sweden With Love. It hit me then that I should make a CD of the simple and hauntingly beautiful Finnish folk songs, instrumentally and in a jazz style.
