Burke – Gould Quartet: LIVE AGAIN
The Burke-Gould Quartet with Nick Haywood and Tony Floyd has been a constant in the Australian music scene since the mid 1990s with almost 25 years of playing together as an ensemble nationally and internationally. This longitudinal approach to music-making has allowed the ensemble a deep understanding of interaction: not just reacting to the moment but making musical choices based on knowing and understanding the character and identity of each player. The musical in the moment choices made are based on trust that has developed over these 25 years. Trust, that allows each musician to play with belief and freedom to create that ephemeral moment that is so important in improvised jazz.
The music on this CD was recorded live over the last 6 years at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club and the Wangaratta Jazz Festival
Come and celebrate with us the music that has seen us grow as musicians and people.
