April 2019 Newsletter

Transients volume 1 **new album**, Wilson/Anning/Keller @ MRC, Piano Club, plus Mondays @ the Jazzlab and Transient Thursdays @ Uptown...


I hope all is well in your worlds :)

I'm currently working on releasing the first of a series of albums by a mix of Transient trios, that will be on sale late in April, coinciding with a performance at the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon by the Wilson/Anning/Keller combination. More info below.
The music on the album has been brought to life by an amazing crew of people including Flora Carbo (alto saxophone), Julien Wilson (tenor saxophone, clarinet & bass clarinet), James Macaulay (trombone), Sam Anning (double bass), Stephen Magnusson (guitar), Leigh Fisher (drums), Christopher Hale (bass guitar) & James McLean (drums), plus sound engineer Ross Cockle & mixing/mastering by Philip Rex. Watch this space for purchase details.

Below you will find a list of all the April gigs I'm involved in. I'm excited to be starting up a new series as part of my Monday nights at the Jazzlab - Piano Club! There are so many fantastically interesting and diverse piano players in Melbourne/Australia, and we don't get to hear each other play and hang out nearly enough! The Piano Club nights aim to bring our community together, and will feature 3 pianists playing a solo set each. The first incarnation on April 22 will feature Nathan Liow, Sam Keevers and myself.

Thanks for reading and supporting creative Australian music!
