The James Annesley Quartet is an original Melbourne based group featuring James Annesley (soprano & tenor saxophones), Hugh Stuckey (guitar), Tom Lee (acoustic bass) and Ben VanderWal (filling in for Hugh Harvey on drums).
Their music is a unique style of contemporary jazz which draws influence from serene, earthy folk music as well as hard hitting rock. Annesley's compositions are rich in dynamic contrast and varied textures, with an emphasis on strong melodic themes. The open structures of the tunes allow for adventurous, freewheeling improvisations. The group has performed regularly at all of Melbourne's jazz venues, as well The Melba Festival and the Stonnington Jazz festival. They have also toured extensively around Australia. Idle Hands do the Devil's Work, their all-original debut album (available through Newmarket Music and iTunes), has already received extensive airplay and favorable reviews.
