National Jazz Award-winner James Macaulay recently returned from recording his dream project, Today Will Be Another Day, in Tokyo. The music is inspired by his experiences in Japan, touring with Melbourne traditional jazz band the Lagerphones and pianist Aaron Choulai. Inspired by the work of the Allan Browne Quintet, James combines lyricism and abstraction to produce new ways to organise improvisation within a jazz septet. A powerhouse cast of local musicians join him for the Sydney launch.
