RENATA ARRIVOLO TRIO:
A night with the exceptional contemporary jazz trio
Many will remember her performance for The Sydney International Women’s Festival. She played a very special and moving tribute to hugely influential jazz musician Geri Allen. Pianist, composer, and bandleader Renata Arrivolo returns in her exceptional trio format.
Renata has been playing professionally and as part of the Sydney jazz scene since 2004 and has led her own trio and quartet for many years She has studied and worked with great pianists – Judy Bailey, Kevin Hunt, Matt McMahon and renowned New York pianists Aaron Goldberg and Kevin Hays. Her musical personality is one of the contrasts: melodies can be lyrical and light as well as dark and brooding and she views improvisation as the perfect medium between musicians and audience.
Excited to be returning to the club Renata has a passion for improvisation and contemporary jazz and enjoys exploring musical ideas in a trio setting.
“Her compositions and improvisational ideas… tell stories, take you on journeys.” – Andrew Lorien, Colbourne Ave.
Renowned for “the joy and generosity in her performances”, Renata is in her element as leader of her established, tight trio. Playing some well known and lesser-known standards as well as some originals, join us for a night of exceptional music.
