Product details

The music is seductive, tantalising ... the embrace of the tango, capturing the fusion of sax with the gypsy romance of the accordion. Hear the sensual chemistry, evocative of the streets of Argentina as played by these remarkable musicians.

Combining the diverse paths of two pairs of saxophone players, 'Compass' - Christina Leonard, Jeremy Rose, Matthew Ottignon, Luke Gilmore - is one of the most interesting and dynamic groups to emerge in Australia's music scene. Inspired by the idea of breaking down barriers between classical music and improvised jazz, Compass takes an innovative and flexible approach to the Saxophone Quartet, combining influences that are distinct, new and unusual.

Special guest artists are Marcello Maio - piano accordion and Julian Curwin - guitar. Marcello, as one of Sydney's most sought after performer/ composers at only 22, has established himself as a musician with extraordinary and diverse talents. He is equally at home with Jazz, Brazilian, African-American, European folk and Tango. Julian co-founded ARIA-winning gypsy band Monsieur Camembert. He has been performing and composing music his whole life, playing a wide range of instruments, and traversing nearly every style imaginable. He pursues such projects as electro-acoustic experimental pop delicacy Gauche, and quirky tango punk chamber jazz ensemble The Fantastic Terrific Munkle.
