Borrowed Plumage is a new instrumental trio consisting of Tim Jago (guitar), Ben Vanderwal (Drums) and Sam Anning (Acoustic Bass).
The band's name is a turn of phrase bandied about by one member's grandmother and it refers to the band's intentions to consolidate the legacy of the guitar trio in a personal way.
In the greater public eye the guitar has always been the celebrated, noisy sceptre of the rock god rebellious type, but on this night it's role in the evolution of Jazz music will be honoured. This ensemble celebrates the self imposed isolation, public mistrust and detachment from popular culture that has always shadowed and plagued the life of a Jazz guitarist. Relegated to the corner of rooms to talk in hushes about string gauges, hollow bodies and valve amps it is time their sacrifices were publicly heralded.
Tim Jago is one of the the country's most talented guitarists, he has performed all through the state and is a regular member of the Mace Francis Orchestra and leads many of his own projects. He has recently returned from a study trip in New York where he had the opportunity to rub noses with the best Jazz musicians in the world.
Ben Vanderwal has worked with some of the most illustrious names in recent Jazz history including Charlie Haden, John Scofield, Howard Levy and George Garzone. He is a regular contributor to many of Australia's leading ensembles.
Sam Anning is one of the busiest bass players in the country. Currently residing in Melbourne he regularly peforms with the likes of Katie Noonan, Paul Grabowski and James Morrison. International artists he has worked with include Greg Osby, Sheila Jordon and Ingrid Jensen. In 2008 Sam won a National "Bell award" for best young musician of the year.
