All Talk is a forward-thinking trio formed by drummer (and 2016 Freedman Fellow) James McLean, with guitarist Alistair McLean and bassist Chris Hale. They play a mixture of original compositions and original arrangements, with a focus on the interplay between unconventional rhythmic structures, free improvisation and textural soundscapes. Formed in 2012 as a workshop for their original music and unconventional rhythmic ideas, All Talk released their debut album, A Shorthand of Sensation, in 2014. Since the departure to Europe of original bassist Sam Zerna, All Talk has been on enforced hiatus. This will be their triumphant return, featuring a mixture of old and new repertoire.
“(All Talk) sounds like no other guitar/bass/drums trio.” – John Shand
“Jazz is alive and growing in Australia, and James McLean is new-generation proof” – Dr Richard Letts, Director of the Music Trust
