Ben Daley Trio | Tuesday 4 October

The Ben Daley Trio perform improvised jazz music with roots in the jazz tradition of storytelling through melody and song and will be playing an eclectic mix of iconic music. Reimagining well known (and some more obscure) jazz standards filtered through the lens of deep communication and improvisation. Ben is a highly skilled guitarist and improviser and will take you on a musical journey not to be missed. Brendan Clarke (acoustic bass) and Tim Geldens (drums) will be joining Ben to explore jazz standards and also original arrangements of composers ranging from Tom Waits and Stevie Wonder  through to songs from the animated 1973 Disney movie Charlotte’s Web.

Trish Delaney-Brown Trio | Tuesday 11 October

It’s been 10 years since Trish hung up her ‘Idea of North’ a cappella hat. During her 15 years with the Aria winning group Trish’s song writing was well utilised, and her efforts garnered a large number of awards. With her latest project Trish has returned to what she loves best – a small, tight ensemble performing original material in which the voice functions both as storyteller, and as an additional instrument, wordless and blended.

“...a grown, worldly woman-voice, one of happy and sad and all the gospel colours in between.” John Hardaker AustralianJazz.Net
