My Nonet to play at 2013 Wangaratta Festival of Jazz

I am pretty excited to be playing at this years Wangaratta Festival of Jazz.  It is the first time that I have played the main program.  I have been to this festival many times over the years and seen so much great music.  Highlights for me over the years have been the Australian Art Orchestra performing Into the Fire, Graeme Lyall & Tony Gould duo, The Hoodangers, anything with Steve Magnusson in it, the hilarity of some of those old jam sessions and seeing friends succeed and fail (I mean – not win) in the National Jazz Awards.

I will be performing music from my last album – Land Speed Record – with a nonet made up of Perth musicians;

Ben Collins – Alto & Sop Sax / Luke Minness – Tenor Sax / Phillip Everall – Bass Clarinet

Ricki Malet – Trumpet / Blake Phillips – Trombone

Harry Winton – Guitar / Harry Mitchell – Piano / Robin Murray – Bass / Greg Brenton – Drums
