After meeting in Amsterdam, Dutchman Remco Keijzer and Australian Lucian McGuiness have spent three years collaborating long distance, touring Australia at intervals. In March 2009 they launched the album The Seed Habit on Rufus Records. This performance begins a new era for the group as Remco Keijzer immigrated to Australia permanently in mid 2009. In his native Netherlands, Remco led the New Generation Big Band through two CD releases and has taken his own quintet to the North Sea Jazz Festival.
Despite the wanderlust woven in the band’s story, Australia is the musical home of the Keijzer McGuiness Quintet. Much of the music has been written here or on the way to and from here, and the local collaborators have skillfully engaged and coloured McGuiness and Keijzer’s diarchic dialogue. Remco Keijzer’s soulful playing and well-crafted compositions, teamed with McGuinness’s lyrical trombone solos are sure to impress – come and enjoy this great blend of Australian-European jazz.
