Friday 2 March, 2018, 8.30pm
Pianist/composer Chris Cody returns to Foundry 616 with his “luminous jazz” after extensive touring in Europe last year, including appearances at the Ascona jazz festival in Switzerland and concerts around France, where he also spent over 20 years living and working before returning to Sydney a few years ago.
Underpinned by contemporary urban grooves, the originality, warmth, lyricism and humour of Cody’s music have seduced a wide and diverse public around the world, with his recordings also receiving rave reviews from the critics.

Tonight, expect an exciting mixture of brand new compositions from Chris’ latest recording project as well as some standards and French pieces featuring some of Australia’s best musicians.
