“The stars seem to have aligned themselves… His playing achieves an aim of “stillness” in the air that is certainly evident.”
4/5 stars    – Peter Wockner, Jazz and Beyond 

The Tim Clarkson Trio is an intimate band with bite to their playing. They bring together elements of music often at odds with each other: their compositions can be rhythmically and melodically intricate, but in spite of this a sense of groove, melodicism and quirky playfulness permeates the band. With a sense of space and occasion, it is music that gets both the head and the heart, not one at expense of the other.

Tim has a unique approach to saxophone-bass-drum trio which shares roles, often turning elements of the music on their head, with bass and drums often at the forefront. Audiences are always delighted and surprised at their musical twists and turns, and the stories they weave. They have been playing together for a decade, toured nationally and their 2013 album “Land of Free Men” has been heavily featured on ABC Radio.

In their electro-acoustic line up they use their own compositions as a platform for their improvisations. Grooves intermarry with strong melodies and dreamy sounds; risk and intuition are the cornerstone of their music.

Sandy Evans trio / Tim Clarkson trio http://colbourneave.com/component/k2/item/392-sandy-evans-trio-tim-clarkson-trio http://colbourneave.com/component/k2/item/392-sandy-evans-trio-tim-clarkson-trio Tim Clarkson
Internationally renowned saxophonist and composer Sandy Evans OAM is one of the true legends Australian Jazz. The recipient of too many Awards to mention (most recently a Churchill Fellowship), Sandy is a composing member of the Australian Art Orchestra, The Catholics, The MARA! Band, and has been integrating her PhD studies of Indian classical music into her ever-broadening palette of musical invention.
Sandy has invited special guests and fellow saxophonist-composers Jeremy Rose and Tim Clarkson to join her in an improvised suite of music, combining and re-combining in solo, duo and trio. With the breadth of musical experience of these three musicians, it’s sure to be a sonic adventure with a lush palette.
Jeremy Rose’s composition and studies bridges Reggae to Norwegian Folk melodies, music of the Balkans and Cuba and jazz. An outstanding improviser and composer, he was a finalist in the Freedman Jazz Awards in 2012 and 2013. 
Tim Clarkson is a multi-instrumentalist bandleader and composer and multi-instrumentalist who’s unique compositional voice is influenced by the classical and folk music he grew up with and the polytonal directions of modern New York jazz. He has written for large and small ensembles through to full jazz orchestra and has released three albums as bandleader. 

“The stars seem to have aligned themselves… His playing achieves an aim of “stillness” in the air that is certainly evident.” 4/5 stars  – Peter Wockner, Jazz and Beyond

“So Alex Boneham’s bass and Cameron Reid’s drums are very much equal voices with Clarkson’s tenor saxophone, which often twists itself into the knotty rhythms rather than flying above them; rhythms made even more sinewy by Boneham’s singular vigour”.     3.5 /5 stars – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

Autumn in New York

Barney spent three months in NYC last year.  He listened, he learnt, he composed.  With his trio, he'll play some of each.  And tell some stories, probably.

Steven Barry Trio http://colbourneave.com/component/k2/item/200-steven-barry-trio http://colbourneave.com/component/k2/item/200-steven-barry-trio Steven Barry

“Steven Barry, a young New Zealander, has brought his dazzling skills as a pianist and composer to Sydney. He shrugged aside cliche, deployed scintillating articulation, and gave his colleagues such ingenious raw material as the Bartok-inspired Clusters. Boneham's solos were a lesson in how vigour may be harnessed to sensitivity, while Firth layered rhythmic puzzles into the grooves without rendering them academic, and soloed with panache...” John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

Steve Barry crossed the ditch in early 2009 and has quickly become one of Sydney’s most sought-after pianists, having worked with many prominent Australasian and international artists including John Hollenbeck (USA), Theo Bleckmann (USA), George Coleman Jr. (USA), Arun Luthra (USA), Tricia Evy (FRA) and the Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra.

Joined by the heavyweight rhythm section of Alex Boneham on bass and the incredibly sympathetic Cam Reid on drums, the Steve Barry Trio focuses on lyrical melodies, deep grooves and group interaction, and demonstrates a unique collective rapport.
