Barney McAll's Non-Compliance Trio
- Date: Saturday, 4 July 2015, 9pm
- Venue: Uptown Jazz Cafe — 1st Floor, 177 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, VIC
- Tickets: $25/$18
Pianist/composer Barney McAll has returned to Australia after he was awarded a one-year artist residency at the Peggy Glanville-Hicks House in Sydney, where is concentrating on composing (but touring to Europe with U.S. groups later in the year). During more than two decades in New York, he has amassed a wealth of credits and diverse musical experiences, including the Gary Bartz Quartet, Fred Wesley, The JBs, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jimmy Cobb, the late Dewey Redman, and Sia.
His NCT features longtime colleagues Philip Rex (bass) and Danny Fischer (drums), mainly performing new compositions written this year. Their appearance at Bennetts Lane in April was both dynamic and dazzling in the breadth of musical territory explored. "McAll is partial to unleashing surprises himself, whether they be radical dynamic shifts - such as suddenly reducing a solo to the merest trickle of notes against thrumming bass and whispered cymbal chatter - or just finding bewitchingly unexpected turns to take in developing a melody.
