Phillip Johnston plays with the Microscopic Septet, SNAP, The Coolerators, and Fast & Bulbous: the music of Captain Beefheart. Chris Abrahams plays with The Necks, Roil, Mike Cooper and Melanie Oxley. The Sydney Morning Herald wrote about Abrahams’ CD Glow: “…the notes seem to float into existence with the gracefulness of falling leaves.” Phillip Johnston’s music was recently described in Downbeat as “seminal, brilliant post-modern jazz.”
HIT! are at the forefront of the Sydney Hammond innovation, bringing back hard bop, swinging tunes and sharp suits to the organ/tenor/drums format renowned in the 1950s and 1960s for its blues-and-R&B-based style of jazz. The organ trio format was characterized by long improvised solos and an exploration of different musical “moods”. Fresh from a studio date using classic Blue Note microphone techniques, HIT! present original music from their debut release The Dicky Donkey and Other Modern Classics.
