Mondays @ the Jazzlab,
Five Below *new band,
Transient Tuesday @ Uptown plus more...

Well, my new residency curating Monday nights @ 'The Jazzlab' (27 Leslie Street Brunswick) began with a  host of brilliant and inspiring musicians, playing original and improvised music. In the first three weeks alone, I shared the stage with Scott Tinkler, Angela Davis, Carl Mackey, Erkki Veltheim, Stephen Magnusson, Sam Anning, Sam Bates, Mick Meagher, Flora Carbo, Bede Ford-Gaddes and James McLean! 

This month will again begin with the Composer's Circle (a big/small band comprising leading composer/performer/improvisers), and Julien Wilson is my special guest for July.

I will also be premiering my new band Five Below as part of the Monday series. It only occurred to me as I was driving to the first rehearsal, that after 13 years of running a bass-less band, I have now created one with two basses... Perhaps I had been missing something?
See below for program details, or you can check The Jazzlab website, or the events guide on my website.
