THIS WORLD Album Launch

These four musicians are the dream quartet of Australian jazz. If you get just one Australian album this year, make it this.

THIS WORLD is the stunning debut release from this peerless new ensemble comprising four of Australia’s most established and celebrated improvisers.

Bell Hall of Fame Inductee, pianist Mike Nock OMNZ, ARIA Award-winning bassist Jonathan Zwartz and Freedman Fellow and National Jazz Award winning saxophonist Julien Wilson are backed by the driving rhythm of Sydney’s most prolific live drummer, Hamish Stuart.

Presented by SIMA and the Australian Institute of Music, a must-see of this year’s summer program!

“What’s immediately striking is the sense of calm and spaciousness found at the heart of this music. There are no fireworks on display, nothing is hurried or rushed. Instead, there is an intense focus on mood, on emotion, with each instrumental voice striving for an intelligent and restrained clarity…..This World is a sublime album performed by a quartet of stellar improvisers.” Des Cowley, Rhythms Magazine
