Nick Haywood Quintet
Nick Haywood initially formed this outstanding quintet for a collaborative project with American vocalist and violinist Petra Haden for the 2019 MIJF.
The group features 5 highly regarded Australian musicians in Nick Haywood (double bass), Eugene Ball (Trumpet), Colin Hopkins (piano), Stephen Magnusson (guitar) and James McLean (drums).
The deep musical connection these 5 players have with each other is palpable and makes for exquisitely executed, spontaneous performances. Make sure you are at the Jazzlab for this rare appearance by the quintet.
This concert will feature some of the songs the group played at the 2019 MIJF along with some surprises written by members of the band.
“Celebrating her father's legacy in two unforgettable shows at Jazzlab, Haden appeared with an Australian quintet led by the supremely sensitive bassist Nick Haywood. Favouring intuitive interplay over predetermined arrangements, the band ebbed and flowed with the singer as she offered deeply personal interpretations of tunes that her late father had composed or recorded.” (Jessica Nicholas, The Age, June 10, 2019)
