MJC Presents: Eugene Ball Quartet (Tokyo/Mel)
With trombonist James Macaulay (winner of the National Jazz Award 2017) now living in Tokyo, this is a unique opportunity to hear this ensemble during his brief visit to Melbourne.
Trumpeter, composer and eternal sideman Eugene Ball took almost 20 years for to form a quartet under his own name, so it comprises some significant talents in drummer James McLean (winner of the 2017 Freedman Jazz Fellowship), and electric bassist Mick Meagher. Since the release of their debut album, Hi(gh) Curious (which John Clare described as “one of the most startling jazz records”), the Eugene Ball 4tet have performed at the Wangaratta, Stonnington and Perth jazz festivals.
For this performance, the 4tet will perform predominantly new material, which they have developed in recent months.
