Monday nights @ The Jazzlab,
Transient Tuesdays @ Uptown

& premier of new work by Solstice Trio


Thank goodness some warmth seems to be finally heading our way down here in Melbourne! With the start of daylight saving today, it's a relief to finally imagine the long winter subsiding.

I'm spending much of my time working on two commissions, the Merlyn Myer Composing Women's Commission for Ensemble Offspring (premier @ MRC Salon November 28), and Flickerfor Solstice Trio, which premiers at the Melbourne Recital Centre in the Salon this month on October 25. Details here.

Other highlights for October include Mondays @ the Jazzlab with my special guest Stephen Magnusson, and the great Sydney based alto saxophonist Bob Bertles who joins me as part of the Transient Tuesday series @ Uptown Jazz Cafe.

Program details for Monday nights @ the Jazzlab & Transient Tuesdays @ Uptown are below, and in the events guide on my website.
