Album Notes
While this group boasts some of Australia's greatest improvisers, the true strength of this group comes in it's unique approach to collective improvisation.
Taking the commitment of Avant-Grade jazz, the harmonic and textural ideas of some 20th Century Classical composition, and rhythmic aspects of Indian Carnactic music, this is music unlike anything that's been heard before. The 2008 release, “Funcall” (Extreme), with Scott Tinkler (trumpet), John Rodgers (violin), Ken Edie (drums) and Marc Hannaford (piano) was named one of the best releases of 2008 by Lawrence Donahue-Greene at All About Jazz, New York, demonstrating this group has a truly new sound in the international music making community.
