MILES HERBIE TRANE Rodric White & his Quintet featuring Ralph Pyl & Jason Morphett:

Pianist Rodric White & his Quintet present an exciting evening of music by Jazz legends Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock & John Coltrane with iconic compositions by these jazz masters. Expect to hear music by Miles Davis (Joshua, Nardis, So Near So Far), Herbie Hancock (Butterfly, Chan’s Song, Norwegian Wood) & John Coltrane (Naima, Moment’s Notice).

Rodric is delighted to perform again with trumpeter Ralph Pyl (Sydney All-Star Big Band), saxophonist Jason Morphett (The Benders, Free Spirits, Warwick Alder Quartet), trombonist Danny Carmichael (Danny Carmichael Big Band), bass player Peter Kohlhoff (Frances Madden Band) & drummer Steve Ley (Jeff Duff & Patricia Ségui).

‘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 … The show and venue are both recommended.’

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)

‘Rodric White’s latest album on the Newmarket label “The Sea Of Tranquility” shines a bright light on a more than capable composer of memorable melodies, an arranger of uncommon originality and a pianist with an immediately identifiable sound, skill, and style.’

Barry O’Sullivan (‘A Jazz Hour Across Australia’ December 2009)

‘ … 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)
