Product details

Andrea Keller's Life is Brut[if]al, the second album with her band Five Below, is a self-released seven track contemporary jazz oeuvre of gentle musical vignettes, intimate stories and meditative composition.

Life is Brut[if]ul journeys through seven provoking and heartfelt musical stories, and features special guests Scott McConnachie (soprano and alto saxophone), Julien Wilson (tenor, saxophone and bass clarinet) and Jim Keller (voice), alongside Five Below band members Stephen Magnusson (guitar), Sam Anning (double bass), Mick Meagher (electric bass), James McLean (drums) and Andrea Keller on piano.

Five Below formed in 2017 as part of Andrea Keller's Monday night residency at iconic Melbourne venue, the Jazzlab. In 2018, Five Below released Five Below Live (recorded at the Jazzlab) and following on from the success of this album the band won the 2019 Australian Jazz Bell Award for Best Australian Jazz Ensemble.

Also available as a physical CD.
