MJC Presents: Julian Banks Trio (Syd/Mel)
Sydney-based tenor saxophonist Julian Banks’ Trio comprises long-time friends and musical allies, Christopher Hale (6 string semi acoustic bass guitar) and Rory McDougall (drums). A modern take on the traditional saxophone trio, this powerhouse group delights in interacting over the strong melodic platform of Julian’s compositions, seamlessly moving from crystalline melodic sections into heavy hitting jazz.
The trio will explore the music from Julian’s two original releases, Julian Banks Trio (2014) and AGUNG (2017), the latter recorded on tour in Indonesia with stellar percussionist Cepi Kusmiadi.
“On first hearing Julian Banks play many years ago, I was immediately struck by Julian's deep connection to sound. It's what we first "get" as listeners and somehow what we are left with at the end of a performance. Performing along with him are two other very special improvising musicians in Christopher Hale and James Hauptmann, these three fantastic Australian musicians are putting it on the line and getting it on with such beauty, grace and sound." - Stephen Magnusson
