Jex Saarelaht Quartet feat. Grant, Anning, and McLean

Sun 21 April @ 7:30 pm

$20 – $30
Jex Saarelaht Quartet

‘Surely one of the most versatile trumpet players Australia has ever produced’ —Portland Observer

Stalwart of the Melbourne musical landscape, pianist/composer Jex Saarelaht continues to present his own distinctive compositions, along with less-travelled pieces by jazz composers including Geri Allen and Andrew Hill.

For this concert, Jex is joined by three outstanding musicians – eclectic multi-instrumentalist Steve Grant, here performing on trumpet, master-bassist Sam Anning, and winner of the 2016 Freedman Jazz Fellowship, drummer James McLean.

‘All three bring such ebullience to bear that the music never treads water, but rather is always picking you up and taking you off on another exhilarating joyride…’ —John Shand, review of Jex Saarelaht Trio’s CD, ‘Liminal’, The Sydney Morning Herald
