When

Thursday 3 February from 8pm to 10:30pm

It is almost 30 years since the release of the Mark Simmonds Freeboppers album ‘Fire’ in 1993 on Birdland records, with Simon Barker, Scott Tinkler, and Steve Elphick.

The music on this album is just stunning and won the Aria Award for Best Jazz Album in 1995. Sadly Mark passed away in 2020, but our thoughts will be with him as the band plays this masterpiece in full!

"Mark Simmond’s Freeboppers devastated the Basement with an unbroken hour-and-a-half orgy of rhythm and fire."

PERSONNEL:

  • Matt Ottignon – tenor

  • Tom Avgenicos – trumpet

  • Jonathan Zwartz – bass

  • James Hauptmann – drums
