06 May Monday – Divergence Jazz Orchestra
$7.00 – $40.00
Monday 6th May, 2019, 8pm
Doors open from 6:30 pm
After releasing two albums of original music, the 19-member Divergence Jazz Orchestra have established a unique and inspired artistic voice. Now, after some time away, Divergence has returned to Australia’s premier jazz venue, Foundry 616, to deliver their own brand of Australian jazz music with a monthly Monday night residency continuing on April 1st. Directed by Jenna Cave (composer/conductor) and Paul Weber (trombone), Divergence boast a powerful and beautifully balanced orchestral sound anchored in groove, exhibiting immense sensitivity and subtly and breaking from the big band tradition of old. Divergence have received rave reviews for their two albums, The Opening Statement and Fake It Until You Make It.
Join Divergence as they perform band leader Jenna Cave’s original compositions, and works by other leading Australian jazz composers BernieMcGann, Miroslav Bukovsky, Andrew Murray, Cam McAllister, Andrew Scott and many more. Each of their tunes featured contain that zest, energy and buzz that are at the core of Divergence Jazz Orchestra’s principles, with an affinity for groove that accentuates the validity and freshness of a jazz orchestra in today’s musical landscape.
“Four stars…Divergence Jazz Orchestra is remarkably strong and consistently pleasing… Cave writes with depth and maturity well beyond her years, a virtue not lost on the DJO, which carries out her wishes to the letter” – Jack Bowers, ALL ABOUT JAZZ (USA)
