Product Description

The Mike Nock Trio Playing New Tunes and Old! Acoustic and Electric

Since Foundry 616 opened its doors in 2013, Mike Nock has forged a strong association with the venue, bringing his Octet, Redux and Quartet projects to Sydney audiences as well as celebrating his 75th birthday there with a very special performance.

Now comes another exceptional night as Mike and his trio unveil a swag of dynamic new compositions, combining acoustic and electric sounds in some truly exciting and creative ways. Mike has long been known for pioneering the use of electronics in jazz, notably with his US Quartet The Fourth Way. Come and experience the concepts that Mike has been exploring for decades and enjoy in his own words “something old, something new, something blue”.

The Mike Nock Trio, with bassist Brett Hirst and drummer James Waples, is widely regarded as one of the top modern jazz groups in Australia. The trio’s unique sound includes jazz standards plus Mike’s original compositions, reflecting his wide experience in the top echelon of international jazz performance.

2014 winner of Australia’s top music honour The Don Banks Prize, Mike is widely recognised as a vital force on the Australian music scene after returning in 1985 from the USA, where Mike spent 25 years working with jazz greats such as Coleman Hawkins, Dionne Warwick, Tony Williams, Yusef Lateef, etc., and where his group The FOURTH WAY (1968-71) first won him wide international recognition and established his leadership credentials.

With several festival appearances throughout Australasia, Foundry 616 is most pleased to welcome the trio back to Ultimo in what will surely be a wonderful opportunity to experience their musical magic in an intimate setting.
