Schwing/Anning/McLean (Bruny Island/Melbourne) – Debut
Sun 7 May @ 7:30 pm$18 – $25
Julius Schwing is a guitarist and composer from Bruny Island, Tasmania. Since placing Third in the 2022 National Jazz Guitar Awards at the 2022 Wangaratta Festival, and being nominated for the Freedman Jazz Fellowship Award three times, he has started to develop a national profile (aided by his eight CD albums, seven of which are on his own creative music label, Isthmus Music). He composes music for his own ensembles as well as for theatre, sound installations, and short film, and has performed with artists such as Scott Tinkler, Paul Capsis, Bae Il Dong, Aakash Mittal, Petra Haden, and Christian Windfeld.
This brand new trio comprises Schwing (guitars), Sam Anning (double bass) and James McLean (drums). They will explore new music by Julius punctuated with selections of Paul Motian, Ornette Coleman and Keith Jarrett. Julius’s distinct improvising style and compositions are heavily influenced by the dramatic natural environment surrounding his home on Bruny Island and a life lived amongst the elements.
