Matthew returns to the Foundry with a new quartet to explore the music that has shaped him during his 22 years of international touring as a saxophonist.

From playing in Mike Nock’s quartet in 1998, to travelling to India to play with master musicians Aneesh Pradhan and Sudhir Nayak as part of Ben Walsh’s Orchestra of the Underground, touring with musician / comedian Tim Minchin, travelling around Europe with gypsy circus Scotch and Soda, as part of a horn section for the likes of Lou Reed and Brian Wilson for their Sydney shows, visiting Ethiopia with star vocalist Dereb Desalegn or on tv as Mister Saxophone in ABC’s Lah Lah, Matt has soaked up a world of music.

Matthew will be paying homage to his heroes such as Bernie McGann, Mark Simmonds and Wayne Shorter, new hero Shabaka Hutchings as well as touching on music from his bands Mister Ott, Informal Troupe and Mr Sinister.

Joining Matt tonight is Daniel Pliner who he has played with many times in Mister Ott, the Strides and Dereb the Ambassador and two young and exciting musicians Josh Spolc and Alexander Inman-Hislop.

Matthew Ottignon – saxes
Daniel Pliner – piano
Josh Spolc – acoustic bass
Alexander Inman-Hislop – drums
