Saturday 7 August from 2:30pm to 7:30pm

Chloe, Charlie and Jacques have been improvising with each other for as long as they’ve been close friends. The 3-sided force of their friendship keeps them solid.

The trio's music represents this journey, this time through Chloe's compositions and unique improvisatory concepts. The process of trusting each other and bonding tightly will be reflected clearly.

"... two of Australia's finest practitioners, Simon Barker and Chloe Kim ... Kim, a generation younger, is rapidly becoming so distinctive as to be an innovator in her own right... their main commonalities now being breadth of palette and sense of drama." - John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald,

Paul Grabowsky

Paul Grabowsky’s solo performances reprise much of the music recorded on his 2015 album ‘Solo’. The music, mainly composed by the pianist, explores ideas that have interested him for decades: harmonic ambiguity and simultaneous tempi, often explored within the framework of songs without words, melodic, whimsical and memorable. He also often includes songs that refer to the canon of great jazz composers (Ellington, Monk) and masters of the American (and occasionally English) popular songbook. 

Vazesh - The Sacred Key

This event is the album launch of Vazesh's new album "The Sacred Key" to be released on June 25th via Earshift Music.

Vazesh - blowing something, softly

Improvised trio Vazesh are excited to release their debut album The Sacred Key (Earshift Music). Vazesh perform long-form improvisations inspired by the Persian Radif and renowned Iranian tar player Hamed Sadeghi's (Eishan Ensemble) music. Featuring Sadeghi alongside award-winning saxophonist-bass clarinettist Jeremy Rose and bassist Lloyd Swanton, this is an exciting collaboration driven by an exploration of musical discovery. Their debut album The Sacred Key captures the unique spontaneous composition and energy of the group, whilst highlighting the individual talents within the ensemble.

This event received a City of Sydney CBD activation grant.
