The New Impromptu Quartet returns to fortyfivedownstairs for an afternoon of Summer Jazz.
Exploring a world of styles and influences from jazz to Latin, funk, drum ‘n’ bass and soul with a fresh and open musical approach, the band will be playing a selection of original compositions and arrangements of some favourite standards.
The groups comprises of pianist Alexander Nettelbeck , vocalist and guitarist Nitida Atkinson, saxophonist Luke Carbon , bassist Conrad Henderson and drummer Lawrence Grifa. The band members have all recorded and toured nationally and internationally extensively in Australia, Canada, USA, Germany, Japan, Spain, and New Zealand at major festivals including Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Tuscia in Jazz (Italy), WOMADelaide, Mordialloc by the Bay, Toronto Jazz Festival and others. Individually they have recorded on many albums.
‘Few pianists can combine lyricism with a sense of groove the way that Alexander Nettelbeck does – which partly explains the seemingly effortless way that he can shift from ‘straight’ jazz to classical to reggae to R’n’B to every genre and sub-genre, really…His latest trio album, Here Today, is a must-have for anyone interested in compact arrangements, percussive piano sound and creative interplay – as well as in his frequent performances with his trio or his ‘New Impromptu’ Quartet.’ australianjazz.ne
