Sydney’s latest jazz music venue opens its 2011 Jazz Series with the famous Mike Nock Trio.
VJ’s – a beautifully appointed performance space with a super accoustic and a great vibe – has announced a top class line-up for this year that includes Judy Bailey and Leonie Cohen’s jazz bands among others. It will run through to December in the Chatswood venue. The Mike Nock Trio opens the series on Sunday 13 March.
MIKE NOCK’s trios have long been recognised among Australia's leading modern jazz groups and the current line-up with bassist Ben Waples and his brother James on drums, is no exception. Recent international appearances include festivals in Jakarta, Wellington and Tokyo.
His current line-up has been together for several years and features the remarkable talents of bassist Ben Waples and drummer James Waples, who began their musical journey as members of an award winning four-hand piano team. Both brothers studied with Mike at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Still in their late twenties, they are now considered among the very best young Australian jazz musicians and much in demand for recording and touring. Their virtuosity and outstanding musicality bring a fresh excitement to the music, transcending the standard jazz trio format.
Among Mike Nock’s notable CD output Ondas (ECM), Not We But One (Naxos), Changing Seasons (DIW), Beautiful Friendship (ODE) and most recently – to great acclaim - An Accumulation Of Subtleties.
“Nock returns to the trio format for one of his most open-ended and immediate albums of joyous abandon, introducing a new line-up that’s already delivering, but promises even more to come.” - www.allaboutjazz ( US )
