Possibly Australia's most influential living jazz musican, Judy has taught and performed with generations of performers, helping to create the sound and culture of Sydney's jazz scene. It's more than two years since they last played for us, and the ABC has just released a 4CD box set of Judy's recording projects. She will play for us with her long-time trio : Craig Scott on bass and Tim Firth on drums.
STOP PRESS! Tim Firth has injured his arm, so it's another duet!
Judy Bailey, possibly Australia's most influential living jazz musician. Steven Barry, possibly her most promising student. We will have two grand pianos and Judy and Steve will trade the solo and duet piano pieces they have prepared for a concert at the conservatorium next month.
The inaugural Eight Oclock Sharp featured a grand piano, and a selection of Sydney's greatest improvising pianists.
Bill Risby trio
Our first official night. Bill was the perfect choice. The music was very beautiful. Steve Elphick recorded the concert and Bill released it as an album, which you can buy on his website. www.billrisby.com
Alistair is a very musical pianist, and a very unique and dedicated composer. He invited the Australian Jazz Musician of the Year award winning saxophonist Sandy Evans to join him for a wonderful performance of some of Alistair's most beautiful compositions.
Barney is the dark horse of the Sydney jazz scene. His compositions are moody and evocative. This concert was filled with all the wonderful things that Barney brings to his playing, melody, surprise, space, joy and groove.
Judy played some amazing solo pieces in her own wonderful style, and then invited some guests to play some lovely long formed and twisting jazz standards. The guests were David Symes on double bass and Spike Mason on saxophone.
