MJC Presents: Johannes Luebbers Dectet
Formed in 2007, the Johannes Luebbers Dectet (JLD) is a jazz chamber group focused on the nexus between jazz and classical traditions.
Combining jazz improvisation, orchestral instrumentation and a diverse compositional language, JLD has released two albums, resulting in two jazz ‘Bell’ awards and an APRA/AMC Art Music Award. With the support of the MJC, JLD premiered and recorded ten new works in 2017 and 2018, scheduled for release across two new albums in 2019 and 2020.
This performance will feature a selection of these new works, alongside older less frequently heard works, and will feature some of Melbourne’s leading improvisers; Emily Thomas (flute), Ben Opie (oboe), Angela Davis (alto sax), Michael Wallace (tenor sax), Paul Williamson (trumpet), Andrew Murray (trombone), Andrea Keller (piano), Hiroki Hoshino (bass), Aaron McCullough (drums) and a guest artist (French Horn), together with Johannes Luebbers (composer/musical director).
