Description

Jason Bruer & Hammerhead + The Greg Coffin Trio – Thursday, 6th of May 2021:

After two ‘sell out’ concerts in August & November last year, Jason Bruer & Hammerhead and The Greg Coffin Trio return to Foundry 616 to present a night of high caliber, all original contemporary jazz.

Hammerhead will play brand new material & tunes from their much-acclaimed 2019 release ‘Turning Point’. Mike Nock praised this CD by saying “If You want to hear how good Australian Jazz has become, give a listen to Turning Point, the latest CD by Jason Bruer’s Hammerhead, an exceptional recording that ticks all the right boxes. Showcasing his array of disparate influences, Bruer’s compositions are coloured by a wide compositional palette, mirroring his desire to inject diversity into the band’s repertoire – from ‘in your face’ hard swing to a slinky waltz; from breathtaking ballads to a blues-based eulogy; from a classically informed fugue to funk and jazz-folk to odd-meter ‘urban jazz’, it’s no surprise the band has been selling out gigs all over Sydney and have become one of Australias most dynamic and exciting jazz ensembles.

Hammerhead:

  • Jason Bruer – tenor and soprano sax
  • Andrew Robertson – alto sax & flute
  • Cam McAllister – trumpet
  • Greg Coffin – piano
  • Alex Hirlian – drums
  • Dave Quinn – bass

The Greg Coffin Trio are an outstanding contemporary jazz ensemble led by world-class pianist Greg coffin. Displaying the fullness of their collective and individual musical gifts, they will play material from their new 2017 release ‘The Key Is The Colour’. They play with a unique synergy developed over many years as close friends and musical collaborators.

Greg Coffin Trio:

  • Greg Coffin – piano
  • Cameron Undy – bass
  • Nic Cecire – drums
