I am very excited to be performing music from my latest album at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.
I originally set out to compose a suite of diverse movements to explore some ways in which an improvising pianist and saxophonist can interact with a string quartet. These works were then recorded and premiered at the 2014 Brisbane International Jazz Festival. It is a real pleasure performing with Steve Newcomb and a beautiful string quartet.
I hope to see you there.
