Sydney saxophonist/composer Jeremy Rose launches his new album, Sand Lines. The album is the culmination of an extended suite composed by Rose – a rich exposition of compositional ideas that unravel upon the musicians own terms, featuring the group’s subliminal interactions and unique subtlety. Rose regularly performs around Australia and overseas with a range of projects including The Vampires, The Strides, Jeremy Rose Quartet, Compass Quartet, his newly formed Earshift Orchestra, various improvised music contexts and as a sideman with Cameron Undy’s 20th Century Dog and contemporary classical group Ensemble Offspring.
Rose studied in Sydney with Dale Barlow and Mike Nock, and abroad with Tony Malaby, Tim Berne, Hayden Chisholm, Tim Garland and Geir Lysne. Jeremy has undertaken further studies in composition and performance in Norway, New York, London, Banff, and more recently Greece, Cuba and Bali. Rose has received numerous awards including 2009 Bell Award for Young Australian Jazz artist of the Year, was a two-time finalist in the APRA/AMC Art Music Awards and a two-time finalist in the Freedman Jazz Fellowship. Rose will be joined by Joseph O’Connor (piano), Marty Holoubek (bass), and Hugh Harvey (drums). Visit www.jeremyrose.com.au
