Event Details

8:00pm Wilbur Whitta Trio Making their Jazzgroove debut, Wilbur Whitta Trio’s performance promises to be an electrifying venture into a collection of long-form compositions. With influences being drawn from a wide sphere of genres/artists too numerous to name, the band members aim to ignite a fearsome balance between somewhat complex harmonies and their own delicately formed improvisations. Wilbur Whitta – piano Nick Henderson – bass Alex Hirlian – drums + 9:30pm The Turtlenecks This garment-inspired band from Sydney was established in 2015. Drawing sounds from the likes of Jimmy Smith, John Scofield, and Sydney groove masters Hipflask, this hardā€hitting quartet will get you warm and loose, from the neck down and the chin up. They will play a selection of originals by bandleader Jimmy Garden. Jimmy is a soulful tenor saxophone player originally from New Zealand who will be making his Jazzgroove debut. Jimmy Garden – tenor sax Daniel May – organ Peter Koopman – guitar Daniel Kennedy – drums and cymbals www.facebook.com/wearetheturtlenecks What is Jazzgroove?
