ZAC HURREN (QLD) QUARTET, ASYLUM ALBUM LAUNCH (9pm)
“Zac Hurren is one bright light!” - Bernie McGann
“One of the leaders of his generation of improvisers” - Paul Grabowsky
National Jazz Award-winner, ARIA Award-winner and Freedman Fellowship finalist Zac Hurren is a distinctly Australian saxophonist, composer and improviser.
In 2011 Zac won the ARIA Award for Best Jazz Album with his group Elixir, and they are currently preparing to record their next album with Katie Noonan and Stephen Magnusson, featuring a collaboration with Australian luminary Michael Leunig.
With roots firmly probing the rich soils of Australian jazz and improvisation, Zac’s chordless quartet also draws inspiration from classical ideas from baroque to serialism.
