This project enlists the talents of five heavyweights of the world Jazz scene. Featuring 100% original music, this album will showcase Australian music and some of its finest exponents.
The band hails from all over Australia and the globe. After many years based in NYC, myself and Sam Anning now reside in Melbourne. Will Vinson is originally from the UK, but has been based in NYC for 10+ years now. James Muller is based in Adelaide, and Ben Vanderwal in Perth. They will be all converging on South Australia and Wizard Tone Studios to combine their talents for a very special record.
Set for release on May 1st, 2019, this album is well underway. The project still needs support to cover airfares, mixing, mastering, production and marketing costs.
In the realm of Australian music, specifically Jazz, this album promises to be a very important addition to the body of work. The musicians chosen here all exist on the world stage, and getting them all in one room at one time to document new music is a rare feat.
This poses many financial burdens, but all seem insignificant compared to the artistic merit behind making this recording a reality. Getting involved in the project by means of 100% tax deductible donations helps ensure that this music makes it to the world.
The donations raised here will be used to cover airfares, mixing, mastering, production and marketing costs, which are all considerable. The recording itself is already underway, and will take place on February 20th this year at Wizard Tone Studios in Adelaide. The musicians are booked, the music is being written, and the stage is set for one of the most exciting Australian Jazz albums ever made. We would love you to get involved in this important project by making a donation here, and help bring this music to the world, showcasing the strength of Australian music today.
