23 March Friday – Sean Mackenzie Trio
$17.00 – $69.00
Friday 23 March, 2018, 8.30pm
Pianist/composer/percussionist Sean Mackenzie returns to the Foundry616 stage to once again take you away from it all with his joyous sonic explorations, joined by long-term collaborators, drummer Keith Sullivan and bassist John Maddox.
Sean Mackenzie’s eccentric style embodies a worldwide journey through the music of Brazil, Latin Americas, Africa, Asia and the European Gypsies. Described as a “master storyteller” by premier Australian music critic John Shand, his unique style is what sets Sean apart and makes him an important artist in the fusion of world music.
Sean’s explorations started with exploring jazz and journeyed into less conventional, indigenous sounds that have seen him specialise in piano, the exquisite thumb piano (Kalimba) of Africa, and the beautiful Brazilian instruments of berimbau and pandeiro.
Considered one of Australia’s premier musicians, he has composed, performed, recorded and toured internationally with a Who’s Who of artists including Don Burrows, Dragon, the Queensland Philharmonic Orchestra, Afro Moses and Lulo Reinhardt, amongst many others, as well as numerous jazz, ethnic, pop and commercial artists.
In addition to his recent album, ‘Brasil’, Sean has composed and produced earlier recordings, including ‘Talking to Myselves’, ‘Off 2 C The Planet’ and ‘Couch Invaders’.
Come and join us for this fabulous night of spectacular music and great company. If you missed it last time, we hope to see you there. If you came…you know how much fun it was.
