Pat Jaffe Sextet
Pianist/composer Pat Jaffe returns to the Jazzlab with his new sextet, following their sold-out Jazzlab debut earlier in the year. The sextet features some of the most exciting young voices on the Melbourne scene; Flora Carbo (alto saxophone), Jonathan Cooper (tenor saxophone), Callum Mintzis (trombone), Robbie Finch (bass) and Soren Maryasin (drums). For this Saturday afternoon concert, they will be presenting a mix of Jaffe’s compositions from his debut album, ‘Eldorado’, and newer contributions from the other band members.
Pat was the recipient of the 2020 Allan Zavod Performers’ Award and has recorded with the Monash Art Ensemble and Academy Award winning singer-songwriter Markéta Irglová. In 2020, he released his debut album ‘Eldorado’, which was recorded in Reykjavík with the stellar Icelandic chamber ensemble, the Siggi String Quartet.
“His music blends elements of jazz, modern classical, and minimalist pianism, falling somewhere between Brad Mehldau and Australian neo-classical pianist Luke Howard. There’s something in these woven melodies and their relaxed timing that calms the soul when peace is needed most.” - Headphone Commute (UK)
