NOCTET – one of the best Australian jazz ensemble

12 August 2017 @ 20:30 - 22:00

 

It is always a pleasure to have one of our greatest pianist/composers, Mike Nock, perform at the club. Awarded the Don Banks Prize in 2014Mike has been a vital force in Australian Jazz since his first recordings in 1960 with the legendary Three-Out trio. Living in the US from 1961-1985, he is widely known through his extensive catalogue of recordings and compositions under his own name and with many high profile musicians globally.

Named Best Australian Jazz Ensemble at the 2015 Bell Awards, NOCTET, Mike Nock’s  latest incarnation of his  award-winning  eight-piece ensemble makes its first, much anticipated  appearance this year at  FOUNDRY616, a great follow-up top his winter sell-out electronic trio gig.

Featuring  an exuberant mix of  youth and  experience, with  rising stars  trumpeter Tom Avgenicos and trombonist Matt O’Brien, alongside more established players guitarist Carl Morgan, saxophonists Peter Farrar & Karl Laskowski. With these exceptional  musicians, new music & fresh sounds, supported by  Mike’s celebrated TRIO – this will be  exciting night of creative modern jazz.

Come and share  the atmosphere of  warm vibes, friendly people and great  food, to help banish the  Mid-Winter blues!
