TED VINING TRIO (Hobart/Melbourne) – ABC Recording
Sun 1st October @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15 - $20
Now based in Hobart, veteran drummer Ted Vining is an important figure in jazz circles for forming two long-running ensembles: the Ted Vining Trio (1970-2006) and Musiikki Oy (renamed as Blow in 2000). Recently turned 80, his achievements were recognised with the Hall of Fame award at the 2017 ‘Bell’ Australian Jazz Awards. With the passing of bassist Barry Buckley, the Trio became “Impressions”, with younger bassist Gareth Hill joining Bob Sedergreen (piano) and Vining (who have a 40 year association), but have reverted back to their ‘trademark’ name. This Trio has maintained a great deal of the trademark interplay, humour and swing of its predecessor on both standards and some originals.
The performance will be recorded by the ABC’s Mal Stanley for his Jazztrack program
