Saxophonist Rafael Karlen is a new addition to the Sydney jazz scene courtesy of his tenure as 2018 Peggy Glanville-Hicks Composer in Residence. Other more familiar names from jazz and improvised music who have held this residency have been Barney McAll and Jon Rose. No doubt we’ll be hearing more from Karlen and his music after he records his next album (his fifth) in October of this year, a recording that will document material that was originally commissioned by the Brisbane International Jazz Festival. It will be an extended work exploring the charged landscapes of nostalgia and lingering reflection. For this performance the band will present other material penned by Karlen as well.
It’s a very experienced rhythm section but a younger front line where Karlen’s soft-edged and warm tenor saxophone will pair off with vocalist Matilda Abraham whose work on the improvised music scene has attracted admiring comments from critics and audiences.
