Ragan Kang Quintet + Wilbur Whitta Trio :

Ragan Kang Quintet

Ragan Kang – Trombone
Thomas Avgenicos – Trumpet
Yutaro Okuda – Guitar
Alexander Inman– Hislop – Drums
Jacques Emery – Bass                                                                                                                                                                            For the first time in Australia, trombonist and composer Ragan Kang brings his original music to Sydney.                            Returning from Amsterdam with a Master’s degree at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, Ragan’s dynamic new quintet draws back from 20th Century classical and modern improvised music.                                                                                                All of Ragan’s compositions were inspired by childhood memories from Korea, as a dedication to his late grandfather.

“Ragan’s musical conception is becoming increasingly more defined. He thinks about orchestration, texture, and elements that
connect separate musical ideas. In short, he is thinking about the bigger picture.”- Ben van Gelder (Conservatorium van Amsterdam)

Wilbur Whitta Trio

Wilbur Whitta – Piano
Alex Hirlian – Drums
Jacques Emery – Bass

A brand new trio lead by award-winning pianist and composer Wilbur Whitta.  This will be Wilbur’s first live outing as a bandleader since his return to Australia, after completing a Master’s degree at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
This exciting trio will play a set of Wilbur’s original compositions, which are both intricate and flexible, allowing for organic improvisation.
“I was immediately struck by Wilbur’s exceptional technical facility, as well as his singular and personal voice on his instrument” – Kit Downes (Royal Academy of Music)
