8:00pm Wilbur Whitta Trio Making their Jazzgroove debut, Wilbur Whitta Trio’s performance promises to be an electrifying venture into a collection of long-form compositions. With influences being drawn from a wide sphere of genres/artists too numerous to name, the band members aim to ignite a fearsome balance between somewhat complex harmonies and their own delicately formed improvisations. Wilbur Whitta – piano Nick Henderson – bass Alex Hirlian – drums + 9:30pm The Turtlenecks This garment-inspired band from Sydney was established in 2015. Drawing sounds from the likes of Jimmy Smith, John Scofield, and Sydney groove masters Hipflask, this hard‐hitting quartet will get you warm and loose, from the neck down and the chin up. They will play a selection of originals by bandleader Jimmy Garden. Jimmy is a soulful tenor saxophone player originally from New Zealand who will be making his Jazzgroove debut.
