Clean Barraclough -piano
David Galea – electric bass
Luke Pammenton – drums
Josh Hatcher – tenor sax
This was a fascinating evening of wonderful original sounds from extremely innovative, energetic, competent musicians. Many of the compositions were written by Cleon Barraclough and David Galea. It certainly was a “fast moving, syncopated ride through a chaotic city, to slower more lyrical moments in which to marvel and observe” (BJC promo blurb).
Cleon’s solo piano Latin piece enthralled the audience, juxtaposed to the acid jazz sounds of industry, construction and traffic congestion portrayed in the music from “The Unravelling” the second album release from this talented combo.
An excellent evening of contemporary, improvisational jazz.
