Looking for a gift? Why not get a copy of the latest Ted Vining Trio CD ‘For Elvin”?
ted vining trio
Ted Vining Trio's first record was released in 1977, they were considered one of the most tightly-knit groups in Australia.
pianist Bob Sedergreen and bassist Barry Buckley first got together in August 1969, and have played around the world ever since as
a highly sought-after rhythm section. They create a very potent chemistry when they play together, and continue to push boundaries
and stretch themselves musically.
During the seventies they worked as three quarters of the Brian Brown Quartet and as a trio
have performed at all of Australia's major jazz festivals and venues now for 35 years.
The trio is a well-oiled, fully integrated
unit. Ted Vining rarely takes the limelight.... sometimes subtle, sometimes and assertive powerhouse. Barry Buckley keeps
the engine purring with his solid groove-making. The inventive Bob Sedergreen joyrides over a countryside made up of mostly
jazz standards, sometimes reminding you of Dudley Moore.
Says Adrian Jackson: "The three play with one mind, settling into a
perfectly synchronised groove, continually throwing ideas at each other, without anyone ever being caught off guard. It is as
though they have been playing together all their lives. If only more bands could communicate with each other, and their listeners,

'the first one'
Lygon Street, perhaps one of the world's most notorious restaurant strips, draws locals and tourists alike. Il Primo is perhaps
the last bastion of live music and prides itself on being the only establishment on the strip to offer high quality jazz influenced
music residencies to a number of bands.
Wednesday night's residency belongs to Rosa/Horbelt/Sedergreen, whose music never fails
to impress, delight and eventually win over those patrons not normally taken with this style of music.
This CD is a result of
many requests that this working unit provide a recording representative of the music it has been presenting each Wednesday for the
past three years. The playlist reflects an accurate compilation of the band's actual live performances.
p.s. Sonja and
Ivan are actually better known as music teachers who have contributed to the on-going musical prowess of many hundreds of students
at a variety of government and private schools. Bob is now an Adjunct Professor of Music at RMIT.

bob's book 'hear me talking to ya'
Many books have been written about Australian Jazz from the outside looking
in, but this book is writtten from the inside and is a revealing and rewarding experience, from the heart and soul of an important
figure in the history of Australian Jazz.
Bob Sedergreen's impact and influence in performance, composition and education has
secured his place as a national treasure. To play with Bob Sedergreen has been described as the 'ultimate armchair ride'.
To hear him is always exciting and satisfying. "Reading Hear Me Talking to Ya is like sitting next to Bob on a bar stool hearing
a lifetype of jazz stories ...."
