Kevin Hunt Trio CD Launch ‘Hot House’:
Kevin Hunt piano, Karl Dunnicliff bass & Dave Goodman drums, play music from their recent CD release ‘HotHouse’. The trio plays the music of vastly varied musical entities from themes by Maurice Ravel, Duke Ellington, American jazz standards and bebop to melodies influenced by Australian Indigenous culture. ‘HotHouse’ has received a great response and regular airplay on ABC Jazz, Eastside Radio and Fine Music 102.5 FM.
This CD launch is long-awaited and the debut recording for this trio. Formed in 2012, the trio recorded many hours of music in explorative sessions testing the unique sounds of the new Australian Stuart & Sons piano. These discoveries are documented in Kevin’s Stuart & Sons Piano Sound ebook accessed at kevinhunt.com.au
Kevin Hunt’s playing career came most notably into focus with his 12-year performance partnership with Australian jazz supremo Don Burrows. In recent years Kevin has played regularly at Foundry 616 with vocalist Emma Pask. Dave Goodman and Karl Dunnicliff are also very active throughout the Sydney scene in several ensembles, such as Ten Part Invention, Elysian Fields, Mark Ginsburg, Michael Griffin, Greg Coffin, and Joseph Tawadros.
