Kick-starting the 2018 program is new project Barrett, Clarke & Sutton

Since relocating to the ACT in 2017, award winning bassist Brendan Clarke has teamed up with two of his old stablemates pianist Hugh Barrett and drummer Mark Sutton to debut an exciting new trio.

Clarke and Barrett were both long time members of the Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra, The Neilsen Gough Quartet and The Denominators. Sutton and Clarke’s association goes back to the mid nineties when they were both students at the Canberra School of Music.  Mark Sutton has been a driving force on the national scene for many years and was recently featured in “Drum Scene” magazine. Their combined sense of musicality, groove and timing is well known and is a highly respected rhythm section among their peers.

This is a very exciting and dynamic new trio from the nations capital which will be debuting at Foundry 616 on this first performance at the club for 2018.

The trio have been exploring original compositions by the members as well as the music of John Coltrane, Bud Powell, Kenny Barron and Mulgrew Miller amongst others. A great way to bring in the new year!
