Event Details

Trio ensemble Refraction melds the various colours of contemporary jazz composition and improvisation together into a compelling musical soundscape. Drawing inspiration from such artists as Tord Gustavsen, Marcin Wasilewski, Brad Mehldau and Weather Report, the group’s material is centered around drummer and leader Chris Broomhead’s compositions and arrangements – pieces which allow space for collective ensemble interpretation, interaction and improvisation, but hold a clear vision that makes the journey the very destination the music is seeking. Joining Broomhead in this project are pianist Brenton Foster and acoustic bassist Jordan Tarento, and their debut album As We Were was released in March (on Broomhead's independent label Rare Colour Records).

Performers: Chris Broomhead (drums/composer), Brenton Foster (piano) and Jordan Tarento (acoustic bassist)
