Chet Baker’s life was celebrated in the 2016 film, “Born To Be Blue”, starring Ethan Hawke. Chet shot to fame in the early 1950s in the Mulligan / Baker Quartet, going on to perform / record with Stan Getz & Herbie Hancock, singers Elvis Costello & Van Morrison.

Bill Evans truly arrived in Jazz on Miles Davis’ 1959 Album « Kind Of Blue » before forming landmark trios with bassists Scott La Faro, Eddie Gomez & Marc Johnson, drummers Paul Motian, Elliot Zigmund & Joe LaBarbara. Bill redefined Jazz Piano, inspiring pianists Keith Jarrett, Jacky Terrasson & Brad Mehldau.

Rodric is delighted to perform with trumpeter Ralph Pyl (Sydney All-Star Big Band), bass player Peter Kohlhoff (Frances Madden) & drummer Steve Ley (Jeff Duff Band)!

‘Passionate performances of songs associated with the marvelous Billie Holiday made for a great night’s entertainment at Foundry 616. Rodric White’s arrangements allowed the talented six-piece band to display their considerable skills allowing the musicians to entertain and display their skills as soloists and as an ensemble. The show and venue are both recommended.’ – Mark Pigott (Sydney Arts Guide 15th September 2018)

‘It surprised me to hear him announce a Keith Jarrett number. Even more so when [Rodric] played an extract from the Koln Concert. That took guts.’ –John Fenton NZ Jazz Critic (Australia & Pacific Gigs Review 15th September 2015)

‘The music shouts its strengths for all to hear: engaging original compositions, interesting textural meshes of acoustic and electronic and fine playing from pianist White and a cast including Phil Slater and Dale Barlow. ‘ – John Shand (Sydney Morning Herald 24th November 2006.
