Saxophonist/composer Rob Burke recorded his album, The Power of the Idea' (on Jazzhead) in New York in 2015 with the acclaimed American pair of bassist Mark Helias and drummer Nasheet Waits - both musicians considered archetypal improvisers on the New York scene - together with Melbourne colleagues Paul Williamson (trumpet), Jordan Murray (trombone) and Paul Grabowsky (piano).
The concept of the album was based on original compositions that informed free improvisation. The overarching theme being the ‘power of the idea' with spontaneous improvisations that were perceived to be genuinely ‘in the moment’ as distinct from pre-conceived material. Burke, Williamson, Murray, and Grabowksy will be joined for this performance by bassist Marty Holoubek and drummer James McLean.
