Jex Saarelaht Quartet feat. Stephen Grant, Philip Rex & Niko Schäuble
Sun 26 March @ 7:30 pm$18 – $25
‘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
Eclectic multi-instrumentalist Steve Grant is celebrated for his fluency in a wide variety of musical genres, on an wide range of instruments.
Tonight he performs on trumpet, joining pianist/composer Jex Saarelaht and his regular trio compatriots, double-bassist Philip Rex and drummer Niko Schäuble, for an evening mixing Saarelaht’s compositions, (including a piece dedicated to the late Renée Geyer, with whom Jex played for many years), with less-travelled pieces by jazz composers including Geri Allen and Andrew Hill.
‘Surely one of the most versatile trumpet players Australia has ever produced’
– Portland Observer, on Steve Grant
