FAR BEYOND, makes its debut performance at Colbourne Ave with the talents of Paul Cutlan on saxophones, flute and clarinets; Gary Daley on piano and accordion; James Greening on trombone; Ben Hauptmann on guitars; and Sandy Klose on bass. These great musicians will be bringing life to the much anticipated compositions and creative drumming of Fabian Hevia.
Gary Daley and Paul Cutlan, with consumate cellist Ollie Miller in the second set. They are half of Bingarribee, who we still hope to bring to Colbourne Ave sometime (watch Notturno by Bela Bartok here http://vimeo.com/89289097). Dave Ellis called their last show at Colbourne "one of the best gigs of 2014"
Gary and Paul have become firm musical soul buddies over the last few years, discovering their shared passion for twentieth century classical music, world music and free improvisation. Between them lies a kaleidoscopic world of tone colours, with piano, accordion, and various saxophones and clarinets in the mix. From Messian to Bartok, Fats Waller to Steve Swallow, traditional African to atmospheric improv, Gary and Paul create music of colour, beauty and emotion.
This year, Matt released his first album of solo piano pieces, paying tribute to his (greatgreat) grandparents, William and Mary. It's great. Matt has won the Wangaratta award and the Freedman fellowship, and lectures in piano at the Sydney Conservatorium.
Gary is a magical piano and accordion player, whose two recent projects "Sanctuary" and "Bungarribee" have brought focus to his composing and band-leading talents. This week we're going to remember what a simply amazing player he is.
Two of Sydney's great jazz players, improvisors, and all-round excellent people. Paul Cutlan plays all the reeds, Gary Daley plays accordion and piano.
