Winter Jazz: Phillip Johnston & The Coolerators, Diggin' Bones Album Launch
Originally hailing from New York City, The New Yorker called Phillip Johnston, “An exceptionally individualistic composer and superb improviser”. He has led Phillip Johnston & The Coolerators in one form or another since moving to Australia in 2005. Both groovy and cerebral, The Coolerators play funky dance music for a cartoon universe. Now they present Phillip’s second Australian recording, Diggin’ Bones: tight, compact, funky, smart, and a reinvention of organ groove jazz.
SPECIAL SUPPORT: AMPHIBIOUS DUO Oliver Miller (Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Orchestra of the Antipodes, Paul Cutlan’s String Project) and Aaron ‘Baz’ Flower (National Jazz Guitar Award winner, 2007) showcase an intimate version of the Amphibious Quartet’s unusual mélange – the beauty and expressive depth of classical music, the rhythmic and improvisational approach of jazz, with the sound worlds of alternative/post-rock and pop.
