‘CHET BAKER meets BILL EVANS’ with the Rodric White Quartet – Saturday, 12th of February 2022:

The Rodric White Quartet performs the music of trumpeter/singer Chet Baker and pianist Bill Evans, who recorded together on Chet’s 1959 self-titled album (Riverside Records). Chet Baker’s life was celebrated in the 2016 film BORN TO BE BLUE starring Ethan Hawke. Chet shot to fame in the early 1950s in the Mulligan / Baker Quartet, going on to record with Stan Getz, Art Pepper, Jim Hall, Herbie Hancock & Elvis Costello.

Bill Evans truly arrived in Jazz on Miles Davis’ 1959 album KIND OF BLUE before forming landmark trios with bass players Scott La Faro, Eddie Gomez & Marc Johnson, drummers Paul Motian, Elliot Zigmund & Joe LaBarbara. Bill redefined Jazz Piano, inspiring pianists Keith Jarrett, Jacky Terrasson & Brad Mehldau.

“Passionate performances of songs associated with the marvelous Billie Holiday made for a great night’s entertainment at Foundry 616. Rodric White’s arrangements allowed the talented six-piece band to display their considerable skills allowing the musicians to entertain and display their skills as soloists and as an ensemble.”Mark Pigott (Sydney Arts Guide 15th September 2018)

“It surprised me to hear him announce a Keith Jarrett number. Even more so when [Rodric] played an extract from the Koln Concert. That took guts …”John Fenton NZ Jazz Critic (Australia & Pacific Gigs Review dated 15th September 2015)

“The music shouts its strengths for all to hear: engaging original compositions, interesting textural meshes of acoustic and electronic and fine playing from pianist White and a cast including Phil Slater and Dale Barlow.” – John Shand (Sydney
Morning Herald 24th November 2006)
