BOB SEDERGREEN AND FRIENDS

…being free to create

 

A Night of spontaneous jazz created in the moment.

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 DunBabbin, who toured and recorded with

Bob 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

MADAMSHAZZ
