Product details

The Bennetts Lane Big Band is comprised of some of Australia's most celebrated improvisers and composers and, as such, is Melbourne's premier large contemporary jazz ensemble. It was conceived as a vehicle for the performance of new works traversing the fields of improvised and composed music. Since its inception it has generated a repertoire of over thirty works encompassing a broad compositional approach: Some pieces explore facets abstract and conceptual while others clearly reflect the jazz canon. In addition to contributions from its members, the BLBB has commissioned numerous works from external emerging and established composers. The BLBB has performed at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues, and Jazz in the Valley in addition to maintaining its residency at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club on the first Monday of every month.

This recording was made in 2002, shortly after the band formed. Although the band has developed since this time, the performances captured here reflect the intensity of excitement and urgency inherent in new projects: there is an ineffable rawness in these takes, but far from detracting from the overall performance, the gruffness somehow grounds the music, saving it from becoming overtly polished and without grain or texture
