Mirko Guerrini’s Horizontal Quartet – CD launch
Sun 6 June @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$18 – $25
Mirko Guerrini’s Horizontal Quartet premiered for the MJC in 2018 and brings together four bandleaders and composers, with saxophonist Guerrini joined by pianist Andrea Keller, double bassist Tamara Murphy, and drummer Niko Schauble.
Since moving to Melbourne from Italy in 2013, Guerrini has had the chance to play with some of Australia’s outstanding jazz musicians, choosing this personnel for their special skills. In Mirko’s words,
“this band is everything about melody. Horizontality as the main musical approach. You will hear all original music, where the four players are treated like single voices, part of a polyphonic ensemble. Harmonic content is created by the horizontal movement of the voices, and the high degree of interaction between the four musicians will blend everything together”.
They have released an album from their 2020 MJC Online concert, available on Bandcamp.
