Rodrigo studied bass, electric bass, and composition at the University of Brazilia, Escola de Musica de Brazillia, and the Conservatoruium of Gustav Hitter.
In this country, you're most likely to have seen him with Lolo Lovina. That would have made you very happy, but this is a rare chance to hear him close up.
The third in our series of bands led by bass players:
Possibly Australia's best female double bass player, with heartwrenching songs and a voice like honey. Now working in Melbourne, Liz will be joined by local pianist Nick Southcott and Newcastle guitarist Robbie Long (current Australian flat-pick guitar champion) for an evening of stupendous revelations and unearthly delights.
The second in our series of bands led by bass players:
a double bass player with a beautiful and generous style, Steve will play solos duos and trios, with a balance of composition and improvisation, the music he's been borrowing and stealing and making up for all of this life
with two other recognised composing and improvising masters,
Paul Cutlan on saxophone and clarinet
and Phil Slater on trumpet
who knows what might happen!
Fifteen years ago I loved Cafe of Broken Dreams and Rebirth of the Cool. But that was after Dorian turned to writing, and I never thought I’d get to see him sing. Now he’s recorded his fifth album, and he’s launching it for us. Thanks Dorian!
A rare Sydney performance from composer-singer-pianist Dorian Mode and his swinging trio (EOS regular Jono Brown on Bass and Nic Cecire on Drums). Dorian peppers his concerts with funny surreal yarns which accompany his songs, along with beatnik readings from his laugh-out-loud novels. His recent CD earned two ABC Radio awards and his books are bestsellers both here and in Europe.
