Event Details

This is the second concert in our Freedman New Jazz Master series, which celebrates the work of past recipients of the prestigious Freedman Jazz Fellowship Award. Bearing the Bell – the Hymns of Thomas Tallis, is a 60 minute concert program consisting of 9 hymns by the English Tudor composer Thomas Tallis. These nine hymn tunes have been arranged by Andrew Robson and are presented in this performance as a suite, featuring four of Australia’s most well-known and respected jazz musicians. Andrew Robson, Sandy Evans, James Greening and Steve Elphick are each highly regarded improvising musicians and each has numerous awards and projects and recordings to their credit. Their performance of this unique repertoire gives the audience an intimate look at the music of Thomas Tallis through the musical kaleidoscope of four of our most accomplished instrumentalists. Bearing the Bell was recorded and released by ABC Classics in 2008, and has received critical acclaim around the country, proving itself to be a work almost beyond classification. It features elements of the original pieces and infuses them with Andrew’s rich and original jazz language, with the music swaying from individual solo statements to sublime ensemble passages.

Performers: Andrew Robson (saxophone) Sandy Evans (saxophone) James Greening (trombone) Steve Elphick (bass)
