Evans / Robson Quartet – Smith’s Alternative

6 December 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Evans / Robson Quartet - Mary's Underground | Grant Leslie Photography

This collaboration features renowned saxophonists Sandy Evans and Andrew Robson in a dynamic ensemble rich with energy, passion, groove, spontaneity and imagination. Completing the stellar line up are the sensational bass player Brett Hirst and brilliant drummer Hamish Stuart.

The project features compositions by Evans and Robson that explore a wide range of contemporary jazz, improvised music and intercultural connections. Evans’ powerful tenor sound and soaring soprano melodies combined with Robson’s great sense of groove and uncanny instinct for melodic lyricism creates a beautiful and engaging musical dialogue.

One of Australia’s most accomplished rhythm sections generate a joyous improvised space that can be deep, driving, fun filled or tender. The collective result is transcendental music to uplift the soul.
