Event Details

Formed in 1986 to be a flexible medium for Australian jazz composers and improvisers, Ten Part Invention quickly became renowned for their colourful, thrilling and adventurous performances. In this concert, Ten Part Invention will honour the remarkable life and legacy of Australian jazz drummer, and bandleader John Pochée OAM. Pochée formed and led the band until 2011 when he retired, entrusting the brilliant Dave Goodman with the reins. The group will perform favourites by Roger Frampton, Miroslav Bukovsky and Sandy Evans, plus a lesser-known selection from the incredible 80+ compositions that John commissioned. Along with the music, the band will recount stories from the many special experiences they shared with John. Until his passing in November 2022, John remained an active participant with the band - as a leader and mentor. He was a creative visionary who had the passion, intelligence and perseverance to build communities, inspire and support others. He shaped an era in Australian music with generosity of spirit, good humour and brilliance. Please join us to celebrate the memory of this truly great musician.
