Trio Kleine Ahnung: Carl Morgan – Sam Anning – Raj Jayaweera – CD Launch/Debut
Sun 19th January @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15 – $20
Trio Kleine Ahnung brings together three of Australia’s finest jazz musicians who currently reside in Berlin, New York and Melbourne. The band members – Carl Morgan (guitar), Sam Anning (bass) and Raj Jayaweera (drums) – have performed in a variety of combinations and settings for over ten years at festivals and clubs around the globe. Morgan (2014) and Anning (2015) are both Wangaratta National Jazz Award winners and all three members have been Freedman Fellowship finalists.
In early 2019, Anning and Jayaweera were on tour in Europe and found themselves with a week off mid-tour. They decided to visit Berlin and reconnected with Morgan, who is now based in Germany. The trio spent the week playing and recording in Morgan’s Neukölln studio, exploring the guitar trio format with the addition of loops, layers and textures, resulting in the album, Laniakea.
Trio Kleine Ahnung play original compositions by all three members inspired by indie-rock, Nordic minimalism, and the New York downtown jazz scene. For the second set, Trio Kleine Ahnung will be joined by acclaimed pianist Andrea Keller to present a set of Jayaweera’s music. In late January, Jayaweera’s band will be featured at the Thai International Jazz Conference in Bangkok (together with Morgan, Anning, and New York-based musicians Adam Birnbaum and Chris Cheek).
