Kade Brown Quartet – farewell concert
Sun 25 June @ 7:30 pm$18 – $25
Since moving to Melbourne in 2013 from the Bega Valley in far south coast NSW, Kade Brown has become an esteemed pianist in Melbourne’s jazz scene, playing with many Australian and international artists, including Ben Monder, Melissa Aldana, George Garzone, Lennie White, Lucie Thorne, JK Group and Brian Campeau. Having studied jazz under Paul Grabowsky, Barney McAll and Sam Keevers at Monash University, Kade was a finalist in the 2021 National Jazz Piano Awards.
His original music is inspired by the Australian landscape, particularly the stark juxtaposition of the elements where he grew up in coastal NSW. Through thoughtful composition he aims to transmute our landscape into music that becomes fertile ground for improvisation.
Before relocating to Germany in early July, Kade will be performing new original music with his band. It comprises frequent collaborators in Julien Wilson (saxophones and clarinets), who is featured on Kade’s most recent album “Frictions”, and fellow Monash University alumni Alastair Kennedy (drums) and Angus Radley (double bass).
