Steven Barry with Alex Boneham and Cam Reid - new original compositions, all written this year!
I've been promising a set from Steven for nearly six months, and finally the tomorrow has come! After a great performance at 505 a couple of weeks ago, on their way to another one at SIMA next month, Steven, Alex and Cam
are on a roll. Of course, none of those other venues allow youngsters or let you bring your own wine, and the chairs aren't nearly as comfortable...
If you've seen this trio perform, you'll be here. if you haven't, think of your favourite musician who you used to hear all the time until they got too busy and stopped playing the comfortable gigs...
A New Zealander recently arrived in Sydney, Steven is influencened by the trios of Oscar Peterson, Keith Jarrett, and Brad Mehldau. With a focus on the groove, the band will play a mix of original compositions and new takes on old standards.
"At his young age I consider him to be one of the best Jazz piano players in the country (and definitely the best “Be Bop” player). He is my first choice for piano player on any gig. His talent is really quite something; and more than that - as an improviser he is inventive, creative, humorous and exciting to listen to. Steven has great time feel, amazing ears, fantastic compositional skills..." Roger Manins

Beautiful grooves from this new quartet - they'll rock your socks off, in a scandinavian / country / roots sort of way.
