THE TED VINING TRIO

A Tribute to Jazz Piano Greats

Saturday 20th  August 2022

Time: 7:30 – 10:00 pm AEST

 


This event is part of Winter Light 2022 and is presented by Salamanca Arts Centre 

This concert pays homage to the likes of Earl Hines, Fats Waller, Bobby Timmons, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul and more!

Ted Vining is renowned as perhaps the most assertive, hardest swinging drummer/bandleader in Australian Jazz. His style is based on idols such as ‘Philly’ Joe Jones, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, and Australia’s Stewart Speer.

In 1970 Ted formed a partnership with pianist Bob Sedergreen and bassist Barry Buckley, which lasted a phenomenal 37 years until Barry’s death in 2006. Current bass player, Gareth Hill, has filled the gap beautifully and contributes enormously to the distinctive sound of the Trio; a sound heavily and delightfully dominated by the pianistic artistry of the great Bob Sedergreen.

Venue: Salamanca Arts Centre- Founders Room, 77 Salamanca Pl, Battery Point Tasmania

[Enter via Wooby’s Lane or via the lift in the courtyard]

Tickets: $23.90 - $77.66
