Event Details

At the forefront of jazz for nearly six decades, Gary Bartz has helped create jazz as we know it today.

With a career ranging across post-bop, jazz-funk and free jazz, Bartz is counted amongst the pantheon of jazz greats, having shared the stage with Art Blakey, Miles Davis, McCoy Tyner, Pharaoh Sanders, Charles Mingus, Max Roach and many more.

Renowned for his legendary, non-stop live performances, Bartz’s compelling blend of earthiness and elegance infuses decades of experience into every note, creating a “furnace of power and passion”.

Melbourne’s very own Barney McAll will be amongst the stellar quartet joining Bartz on stage to open the 2016 Festival, performing his latest project – Coltrane Rules, Tao of a Music Warrior – honouring the icon with classic renditions that would make him proud.


This performance will be broadcast live on ABC Jazz, presented by Mal Stanley.  Hear ABC Jazz in Australia on Digital TV (channel 201), Digital Radio, the ABC Radio Mobile App and online, at abc.net.au/jazz.
