Saturday 28 March – Sandy Evans, Tony Gorman, Bobby Singh and Sandy Evans Trio

7.30: Jazz Insights- Pre-concert talk with Tony Gorman and Sandy Evans

In this pre concert talk hosted by Peter Jordan, Tony and Sandy will reflect on their lives and careers in jazz. Sandy will also discuss highlights of her recent Churchill Fellowship trip to India.

Set 1 @ 8.30 – Tony Gorman (clarinet) Bobby Singh (Tabla)

Tony’s infinitely nuanced clarinet playing is pensive. Accompanied by tabla wizard Bobby Singh, this duo was described by SMH as ‘intimate, like music being whispered in your ear, or like a confession from a best friend’. Join us for this intimate duo performance.

Set 2@ 10pm  – Sandy Evans trio feat. Bobby Singh

Sandy Evans (saxophones) Bobby Singh (tabla)
Brett Hirst (bass) Toby Hall (drums)

This music redefines the fusion of jazz and Indian music with thrilling improvised dialogue, breath- taking improvisations and stunning percussion solos. The group will premiere two new compositions from the CD Kapture that was recorded in January.
