The Jo Fabro Quintet (2013)

The 2013 release of the debut album from The Jo Fabro Quintet saw Jo step firmly into the spotlight of the Australian Jazz Scene.

This self-titled release – JFQ, draws on Fabro’s experiences, a combination of tunes written over the past 7 years, as well as songs written specifically for this album. JFQ is firmly rooted in the jazz genre, with hints of soul and blues music, which Fabro sights as an influence in her musical tastes.

The new album feels like a coming of age for Fabro. The Band features Australian Jazz Heavyweights Pianist Greg Coffin (Greg Coffin Trio, Kristen Berardi Band), guitarist Aaron Flower (Dunedes, Vince Jones), bassist Brendan Clarke (Bernie McGann Quartet, Mothership Orchestra), and drummer Miles Thomas (Gerard Masters, Pen Island).

Good Winter (2018)

 

 

Antipodes is a collective of New Zealand, Australian, and European jazz musicians co-led by pianist Luke Sweeting and saxophonist Jake Baxendale. The group plays original compositions with an emphasis on melody, emotive soundscapes, and an open improvisational aesthetic. Their music is drawn from diverse influences — modern New York jazz meets Swedish indie pop and European free improv.

“I was taken aback by how sophisticated was this [is] … how perfect were the harmonies of the front liners … the sound merging so neatly and satisfyingly … [with an] air of clarity and refinement. Classy playing with deep intent.” — Eric Pozza, Canberra Jazz
