In late 2011, saxophonist Rob Burke (Sax) and jazz pianist Tony Gould released their new CD ‘Live at Bennetts Lane’ (Jazzhead) with long time members of the quartet, Tony Floyd (drum-kit) and Nick Haywood (bass). The CD consisted of original compositions as well as jazz standards such as Cole Porter’s, All of Me, Rogers and Hart’s It’s Easy to Remember. The focus of the music was improvisation, but with a strong jazz and world music tradition. Significantly, the song structures were manipulated and deconstructed; very much in the moment with a focus on melodic and rhythmic beauty.
2017 ... and the quartet plans to further develop these improvisational ideologies and document by recording live performances; it is now the turn of the fabulous loft room at the Paris Cat Jazz Club.
The members of the quartet are well known individually but together are one of the countries leading quartets having performed together for over 20 years at festivals and jazz venues, touring nationally and internationally. The members of the ensemble are also leading academics in jazz studies at Monash University and UTAS.
****** For this special gig in the lead-up to the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Luke Andresen will feature on drums.*****
