We’re well into 2019, and some recordings I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of are making their way out into the world. The first is the debut album from Sydney saxophonist/composer Sam Gill’s quartet Coursed Waters, entitled Many Altered Returns, which is released on Earshift Music. I began playing with Sam a few years ago, when I was travelling to Sydney frequently as part of my PhD studies, and the music he’s written is both exciting and challenging.
Pianist/Composer Andrea Keller’s newest release, Transients (Volume 1), documents music developed by a number of ensembles as part of her long running Transient Thursday residency at Uptown Jazz Cafe. The trio of Andrea, myself, and bassist Christopher Hale is featured on the first track, Musings. Keep an eye out for Volume 2, due out later this year, which will feature more of this trio (as well as more of all the other great musicians!).
Also coming soon is the debut album of Tamara Murphy’s Spirograph Studies, to be released July 1st.
