HERE&NOW is a new presentation from the WollCon Jazz Series celebrating the cutting-edge; four nights of state-of-the-art, original music featuring the most exciting young musicians on the improvised music scene.
7:30pm – jetrio
jetrio are a neo-instrumental band with a unique sensitivity to ambience. The atmospheres they create evoke and juxtapose folkloric melodies alongside bouts of undulating rhythms. Their recording debut, jetrio: I is available now on Bandcamp.
9pm – Rogues
The brainchild of Sydney saxophonist and composer David Reglar, genre bending, original music quintet Rogues draws on many influences from the worlds of jazz and folk with hints of country and indie rock. Think The Bad Plus meets Bon Iver or Thom Yorke fused with The Matt Keegan Trio – the exciting interplay of modern jazz with the sensitivity and melodicism of popular music.
Lead by Reglar, who’s credits include playing and recording with pop giants Lime Cordiale and Jerome Farah to Australian world music icons The Strides, the group features Freedman Fellowship winner Novak Manojlovic on keys, National Jazz Award Finalist Alex Inman-Hislop on drums as well as two of the most sort after musicians on the Sydney scene in Yutaro Okuda (guitar) and Nick Henderson (bass). Rogues will release their anticipated debut EP entitled “Rubber Man” in October 2022.
TWO SHOWS: 7:30pm and 9pm – Thursday 17th November
