MJC Presents: Jordan Tarento Sextet

Known for his versatility across an eclectic range of contemporary and improvised music, bassist Jordan Tarento has performed with Refraction, La Influencia, Barney McAll and the Brenton Foster sextet. After a year-long, intensive writing period, Jordan presents his debut as composer and bandleader, with an album's worth of never-before heard, original compositions, channelling influences as wide-ranging as Skulli Sverrison, Kurt Rosenwinkel's 'Caipi', Nik Bartsch and The Pat Metheny Group.

Detailed and intricate, these compositions blend elements of jazz, chamber music, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban music, and tie it all together with densely orchestrated harmony, tight, polyrhythmic grooves and soaring melodies.

This debut performance will be delivered by a six-strong ensemble, featuring Amy Valent-Curlis (marimba, xylophone & glockenspiel); Darryn Farrugia (drums & percussion); Adelaide-based Hugh Stuckey, and Harry Tinney (guitars); Darrin Archer (piano & keyboards); and, Jordan Tarento (double bass & bass guitars).
