Double Bill: Claire Cross: Into Light + COAST

February 17 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Embark on a genre-bending journey that will stretch your imagination.

Claire Cross presents her latest project “Into Light” – an immersive, electro-acoustic suite that swells with lush textures and delicate melodies. Commissioned by the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, the all-Melbourne project features outstanding young saxophonist Flora Carbo.

Paul Derricott earned his stripes playing in multiple projects, at home and abroad. His genre-defying style as a drummer defines the modern jazz fusion outfit COAST. The music focuses less on technical prowess, and more of tasty grooves and driving rhythms.

Biddy Connor – Viola
Stephanie Arnold – Cello
Flora Carbo – Alto Saxophone/Bass Clarinet
Jordan Murray – Trombone
Harry Cook – Piano
Paul Derricott – Drums
Peter Koopman – Guitar
