Two of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary instrumentalists and long time collaborators, Guy Strazz and Matt McMahon, present a program of acoustic jazz for guitar and piano. They are joined by the gifted singer, Edo Santoni, whose musical connection to Strazz and McMahon is deeply rooted through Guy’s Passionfruit band, and Edo’s own projects. Guy and Matt’s debut album, 2@1, was released on the Birdland label and received an AIR Nomination  for best jazz release 2009.  A rare opportunity to enjoy this trio project in its making in the intimacy, and relaxed atmosphere of the church.

"It is easy for piano and guitar to trip over each other harmonically, but these two,  amongst the most lyrical players in the land, sing from the same hymn book”.
John Shand SMH.

“Music at its most fundamental and most thrilling”

“One of the numerous beautiful themes is Zawi, an ode to pianist Jo Zawinul, where a flowing, unobtrusive melody achieves a carefully cultivated sense of peaceful relaxation”.
John McBeath, The Australian
