The Energy of Jazz: NOW – SOLD OUT!

July 22 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Exemplifying the exhilarating energy of jazz, SIMA presents two dynamic ensembles rich with passion, groove, spontaneity, and imagination.

Featuring

Sandy Evans/Andrew Robson Quartet
Galaxstare ft. Kristin Berardi & 21monks

“…This saxophonist ranks as one of the best contemporary jazz composers/musicians anywhere.”

– Ian Patterson, allaboutjazz.com

Sandy Evans/Andrew Robson Quartet

A never-heard-before new collaboration between Sandy Evans and Andrew Robson puts supported experimentation & collaborative interplay at the forefront. Bringing together Evans’ powerful tenor sound and soaring soprano melodies, with Robson’ great sense of groove and an uncanny instinct for melodic lyricism, the group will create a thrilling and engaging musical dialogue of original works.

Galaxstare ft. Kristin Berardi & 21monks

“like Chick Corea, [Richard] Maegraith is not afraid to move beyond of the bounds of whatever constitutes jazz”

– John Hardaker, Jazz and beyond

Returning home from Berlin, veteran Sydney saxophonist Richard Maegraith and Vocalist Kristin Berardi launch their long-awaited 3rd album, “Listening with your eyes” under the pseudonym ‘Galaxstare’. Kristin Berardi is heralded as Australia’s greatest jazz vocalist, with the international recognition that attests to the claim. Her voice has a strength and directness from its honesty and vulnerability.

Special guest hip-hop artist 21monks joins on a selection of compositions, bring his unique cross-genre experience to the mic.

Sandy Evans: Tenor, Soprano Saxophones
Andrew Robson: Alto, Baritone Saxophones
Brett Hirst: Double Bass
Hamish Stuart: Drums

Kristin Berardi – Vocals
Gary Daley – Keys
