BLOW QUINTET - CONCERT

Kool Under the Stars

Saturday 2nd November 2019

Time: 8:00 – 11:30 pm

 

 

A brilliant evening of Jazz under the stars in the Carrington Inn summer garden

 

Featuring:

Ted Vining (drums), Bob Sedergreen (piano, keyboards), Peter Harper (alto sax), Ian Dixon (trumpet, flugelhorn), Gareth Hill (double bass)

BLOW has been at the forefront of Australian contemporary jazz since its inception as Musiikki Oy during the early 1980s. 

 

The ensemble's artistic vision is limitless and ever evolving, inspired by the moment, the place, the audience, the mood and the empathy shared by the members of the ensemble. Exceptional improvisers who create a group sound that is uniquely BLOW.

The group's philosophy, programming and approach to the art form of Jazz epitomise the very best of Australian Jazz. Co-led by drummer Ted Vining and tenor saxophonist Peter Harper, the band's repertoire is a judicious mix of originals with an occasional standard included. 

"Take a core sample of the Jazz strata and BLOW is an assured and intoxicating distillation of many of its layers. Their CD Blue Sun Red Moon is a celebration of a shared passion and conviction. Its wordless songs of joy are anthems to the human spirit and the collective experience of creating music in the moment."

Guitarist Zac Lester maybe young but he’s already toured Africa, Europe and the UK playing at major concert events. Zac has great taste, good ears and a positively electrifying approach to playing guitar. Richard Rose is a dependable and powerful electric bassist with a big sound. And the ability to generate the right feels. Bob Sedergreen, Mal Sedergreen and Gordon Pendleton are members of the only blues band to emerge from the Jazz scene, Blues On The Boil., who appeared at major festivals in Australia and recorded the iconic album, Potent Brew.

Come and experience a true uncontrolled jam session of contemporary jazz and blues by this new ensemble. Their first gig received rave reviews from the audience, some long time fans saying it was best gig Bob had produced for some time.

An evening in concert with Bridgette Allan, voice, Bob Sedergreen, piano, 

As a jazz pianist Bob’s legendary status need no confirmation. He has performed with some of the world’s best jazz players. His empathy with Bridgette Allan stems from many years of collaboration and touring. From Brubeck to Broadway and back only Bridgette can deliver melody and lyrics in her own inimitable and hypnotic style.

For this show she will concentrate on the Jazz queens of Broadway. Bob has chosen to add some spice to the rhythm section by working with his longtime colleagues Gordon Pendleton on drums and Jon Chidgey on bass.

BOB SEDERGREEN AND FRIENDS

The First One

Friday 20th December 2019

Time: 8:00 – 10:00 pm

 


 A great way to celebrate the upcoming holidays  Some two decades ago a trio of Rosa – Horbelt – Sedergreen became the last bastion of live music in Carlton’s famous Lygon Street Strip. They played outside the restaurant Il Primo literally translated as The First One. And recorded a CD of the same title mixing contemporary jazz classics with show tunes. 

 

They have somehow stuck together both musically and as friends despite their busy schedules. We invite you to share the joy and empathy at this rare performance of this most cohesive ensemble. Maybe pick up their CD as a great Xmas present!!!

Tickets: $20/$15
