Jordan Tarento Sextet – Premiere
Sun 9 May @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$18 – $25
Known for his versatility across an eclectic range of contemporary and improvised music, bassist Jordan Tarento has performed with Refraction, La Influencia, Barney McAll and the Brenton Foster sextet.
After a year-long, intensive writing period, Jordan presents his debut as composer and bandleader, with an album’s worth of never-before heard, original compositions, channelling influences as wide-ranging as Skulli Sverrison, Kurt Rosenwinkel’s ‘Caipi’, Nik Bartsch and The Pat Metheny Group. Detailed and intricate, these compositions blend elements of jazz, chamber music, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban music, and tie it all together with densely orchestrated harmony, tight, polyrhythmic grooves and soaring melodies.
This debut performance will be delivered by a six-strong ensemble, featuring Amy Valent-Curlis (marimba, xylophone & glockenspiel); Darryn Farrugia (drums & percussion); Adelaide-based Hugh Stuckey, and Harry Tinney (guitars); Darrin Archer (piano & keyboards); and, Jordan Tarento (double bass & bass guitars).
Doors open 7:00 pm, music starts at 7:30
