Renata played for us earlier this year, after asking for a long time.
It was a beautiful gig. Piano trio, plus sax. Like a warm autumn day with a hint of cool breeze. Actually maybe it was a warn autumn day with a hint of cool breeze.
Anyway, she's back with her excellent very-sydney rhythm section of Nic Cicere and Max Alduca.
You can read about her on her own website, which i can't believe I didn't tell you about last time. It's quite good. renataarrivolo.com.au

Tonight they will be playing some widely known and lesser known standards. As well as some originals.
Antipodes was formed after Baxendale met Sweeting at a jam session in Berlin in 2013. Their musical connection became immediately apparent and they began writing and performing original compositions together. Sweeting from Sydney is a pianist known for his indelible work with jazz-improv group the Grey Wing Trio. Saxophonist Baxendale a key force behind the burgeoning Kiwi band The Jac and is one of the most energetic forces coming from the underground Wellington jazz scene.
After returning from their time overseas they set to work touring NZ and Australia with an expanded group in early 2014, producing several live recordings and garnering positive reviews from critics. Motueka born guitarist Callum Allardice, a frequent collaborator of Jake’s, joined them in NZ and contributed a number of his own compositions. The new sextet also features Sydney musicians Simon Ferenci (trumpet) of Mothership Orchestra fame, one of Sydney’s hardest working double bassists Max Alduca and Harry Day of electro-pop band Beaten Bodies.
