The Luke Sweeting Quintet

Luke Sweeting Luke Sweeting

Luke moved down from Canberra a couple of years ago, and is now an integral member of half a dozen bands, with two original albums under his own name.  He's toured Asia and Europe and blah blah blah you know.  What's great is that he is actively exploring the sounds and the culture of Australian jazz, composing and improvising with everyone he can, bringing together themes and styles and (as with so many players of his generation) forging a new local style to take to the global stage.  And he's good at it.

They'll be playing tunes from Luke's recent album People and Lightbulbs and a bunch of new material.
