Album Notes
Potbelly Stove is the debut album by the Hobart based jazz ensemble The Julius Schwing Quartet
(J.S.Q). It is a fiery entry onto the scene from a group that has ignored its geographical constraints
and has endeavoured to bring a distinctly Tasmanian sound to the interstate jazz scene. With Julius
Schwing on guitar, Danny Healy on sax, Hamish Houston on bass and Alfred Jackson on drums, the
J.S.Q is an outlet for Julius's compositions which often come to life through a collaborative and
“band” oriented creative process. Recorded at Baker Street Studios in Melbourne at the end of 2011
with producer/engineer Myles Mumford, the album displays an extremely large yet focused and
harmonious dynamic range and showcases a selection of the bands material ranging from tight and
hungry modern swingers (Waltz Alalullaby, A Story of Glory) to film like landscapes (A Good
Paddock, Jackson's Track) and the very wild and catastrophic (Blackbeard's Party).
The material mirrors the rugged and natural surroundings in which it was written, at Julius's home
on Bruny Island off the south east coast of Tasmania.
The Quartet has enjoyed strong crowd support at clubs such as Bennetts Lane, Paris Cat, 303 and at
Devonport Jazz Festival, Clarence Jazz Festival, MONA, as well as airplay on ABC Classic Fm's Jazztrack with Mal Stanley and Hobart FM. Potbelly Stove is currently an independant release and was made with generous support from
Arts Tas.
