Loretta Palmeiro & Mark Isaacs: ALBUM LAUNCH – All Who Travel With Us:
Consummate improvisation duo Loretta Palmeiro (soprano saxophone) and Mark Isaacs (piano) cross boundaries between jazz, classical music, new music, and other genres.
Demonstrating how music can elegantly respond to change, the duo draws on intuition, imagination, and innovation as they take listeners on a remarkable and evolving voyage.
The results can be delicate, furious, or passionate: proof that unpredictability can be a beautiful journey even when the destination is unknown.
After playing together for five years on a regular basis and purely for the love of it, they made their public debut at the 2017 Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival.
The duo also played the 2018 Sydney Conservatorium International Jazz Festival and SIMA’s Summer Jazz 2020. At the start of the COVID-19 lockdown, the duo’s original spontaneous creations launched SIMA’s streaming A Meditation in Jazz series on Facebook and YouTube.
The result was an outpouring that touched online audiences with the magic and creativity that took place in those moments. Their album “All Who Travel With Us” captures that music, live, exactly as it was created in the session, emerging as a candid and striking three-part- suite.
