15 July Saturday – Renata Arrivolo Trio
Saturday 15 July 2017, 8.30pm
Join us for the follow-up performance of pianist/
Renata has been playing professionally and as part of the Sydney Jazz scene since 2004 and has led her own trio and quartet for many years as well as being a regular member of The Mortal Blow Swing Big band and Ocktojazz Octet.
Renata has studied and worked with great pianists – Judy Bailey Kevin Hunt Matt McMahon as well as internationally renowned New York pianists Aaron Goldberg and Kevin Hays. Her musical personality is one of contrasts: melodies can be lyrical and light as well as dark and brooding and she views improvisation as the perfect medium between musicians and audience.
Excited to be returning to the club for the second time this year, Renata has a passion for improvisation and contemporary jazz and enjoys exploring musical ideas in a trio setting. Tonight they will be playing some widely known and lesser known standards and jazz tunes as well as some of their own compositions.
“How to become a great musician : become a great person, and then play what comes naturally” by Andrew Lorien
“Renata Arrivolo is a great person. She’s warm, generous, beautiful and a great conversationalist. And all of this is in her music. Her compositions and improvisational ideas must have been hard to nail down, but sound so natural. They tell stories, take you on journeys – they are serious, studied, and complex, but approachable. She brings intellect and historical understanding, but none of that weighs her down. The joy and generosity in her performances make the intensity of the chords and runs and solos feel easy. Listening to her trio is like having dinner with three great authors discussing their next novels”.
