Stories of empowerment, dedication to growth and love in all its forms.
Fresh out the studio at ABC Jazz, bassist Lucy Clifford premieres her sextet at the acoustic splendour of Johnston St Jazz.
The 2022 Jann Rutherford Memorial Award recipient’s music optimises Wollongong’s distinctive sound within the Australian jazz scene – lush and textural harmonies, contrasted by lyrical melodic phrasing.
Through her music, Clifford creates an encouraging space for exploration, via way of raw grooves, lyrical arrangements and an igniting spirit.
Although rooted in jazz expression, this band explores beyond the fringes of genre, building symbiotic rhythms and pulses that interlock with all things motion, stillness and freedom in between.
“this concert is a sneak peak listening experience for you, ahead of my upcoming 2023 album debut.”
