Supported by Great Southern Nights: Mister Ott – Saturday, 26th of March 2022:
Mister Ott is a Sydney jazz sextet merging mesmerising eastern sounds, tight jazz-funk, hypnotic grooves with melismatic horn lines, and high calibre ecstatic solos. Mister Ott takes you on a journey, to another place and time where you lose yourself in the music.
With a keen ear and an expansive range of musical experiences, Matthew’s original compositions for his own band, Mister Ott, comprise an amalgamation of melodies from many lands, in particular Ethiopian music, aligned with the free-form improvisation and syncopation for which African-pedigreed jazz is renowned. Mister Ott has three releases, the most recent being ‘In The Flow’ 2021.
Matt Ottignon – sax
Ellen Kirkwood – trumpet
Ben Panucci – guitar
Freyja Garbett – keys
Jann Bangma – bass
Carlos Adura – drums
