Niko Schäuble’s ‘Then This’
Sun 29th March @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15 – $20
Drummer/composer/bandleader Niko Schäuble premiered this latest project for the MJC last year, bringing together four exciting musicians, playing a selection of lesser-known standards and new originals by Schäuble. Their combined musical backgrounds – together with the bass-less format of the ensemble – will create a setting which allows for unique and surprising twists and turns.
Tony Hicks (woodwinds) is an in-demand soloist in a wide range of styles, ranging from Randy Brecker, Melbourne Ska Orchestra and Yid!, while Mirko Guerrini (saxophones) has an impressive list of international credits such as Stefano Bollani, Billy Cobham and Hermeto Pascoal.
Stephen Magnusson (guitar) has been a longtime collaborator of Schäuble’s, performing in several of his projects (including the acclaimed Night Music album with Enrico Rava). Schäuble has led his own ensembles (Tibetan Dixie, Papa Carlo, Quattro Club), as well as recording with the Australian Art Orchestra, Paul Grabowsky and Arthur Blythe.
