Time: 8:00 – 10:00 pm

 


A night of spontaneous jazz created in the moment.

 

Free Spirits, featuring Bob Sedergreen, keyboard, David Jones, drum/percussion and Scott Dunbabin, bass. This group received phenomenal audience reaction at every gig they have performed at the Lido jazz Club.

 

David Jones is not only Australia’s iconic percussionist but in demand internationally. David is no stranger to jazz having played and recorded with the Brian Brown (OAM) and Don Burrows (OAM). David and Bob have also recorded together on the albums “Intuition” and ”Bells make Me Sing”. Their musical relationship spans some 35 years.

 

The same applies to Scott Dunbabin, who toured and recorded withBob for a decade in “Blues on the Boil”, the only band from the jazz scene to truly define Texas and Chicago Blues. Scott’s unique sound comes from his specially created bass.

Scott spent some years playing free jazz with the legendary Brian Brown (Dec). Bob, David and Scott are protégées of this incredibly gifted and passionate musician.

“The Trio captivated as they took the audience on a 2 hour fun filled, improvised musical journey, spanning the careers of all 3 players. What was created was music to inspire the next generation. The experience made me feel ecstatic, I'm still buzzing! A must see, world class music ensemble.” Ollie 19
