June 2017 Newsletter

Melbourne International Jazz Festival,
Mondays @ the Jazzlab, a Bell Award,
Still Night, Clash of the Transients & more...

May was a pretty big month! Along with receiving the Merlyn Myer Composing Women's Commission for 2017, the album 'Consider This' that Tim Wilson & I released last year won the Australian Jazz 'Bell' Award for Best Australian Instrumental Jazz Album! You can check out the album here.
On top of that, 'Travellers' by Keller/Murphy/Browne has just received a nomination for Best Independent Jazz Album at the 2017 AIR Awards. You can check out the album here.
And, to top it all off, I'm super excited to announce that I will be curating Monday nights @ 'The Jazzlab' (27 Leslie Street Brunswick). I will be performing and/or curating every Monday night, presenting new projects, including the Composer's Circle (a big/small band comprising leading composer/performer/improvisers), new collaborations, including Masters & Apprentices, and a special guest each month. Check The Jazzlab website for program details, or the events guide on my website.

Some exciting gigs this month as part of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival. I'll be presenting a special Transient Tuesday @ Uptown with Clash of the Transients!
Still Night: Music Poetry
 will be performed @ the Jazzlab, and as part of the Paul Willamson Quintet, I'll be opening for the Carla Bley Trio @ the MRC!!!
