Holly Moore brings together her new quartet featuring some of Melbourne’s finest young musicians.  This group explores her new compositions inspired by the chaos of 2020, delving into themes of love, loss and displacement.  Drawing on European jazz and post-bop influences, their sound is lush, grand and dynamic. Holly Moore (alto saxophone) performs with Kade Brown (piano), Robbie Finch (double bass) and Luke Andresen (drums).

This special concert is a celebration of the 81st birthday – and ongoing career - of the highly respected pianist/composer/educator Dr. Tony Gould, who retired from his fulltime position as Professor of Music at Monash University at the end of 2015.

Gould is possibly the most ‘formally’ recognised figure to work in the Australian jazz scene (although he refers to his music as "post-jazz"), with a Two Year Australia Council Fellowship over 2006/2007, and a Don Banks Fellowship in 2009 (as well as an Order of Australia), plus the 2011 Australian Jazz Award “Hall of Fame”.

For this occasion, he is joined by long-time colleagues Ben Robertson (double bass) and Tony Floyd (drums), together with guests, Angela Davis (alto saxophone), and Mirko Guerrini (tenor saxophone). He also wishes to “introduce” one of his favourite young classical pianists - Berta Brozgul- who will perform Chopin and other classical pieces in a solo cameo.
