19 March at Dizzy’s

On the 19th of this month, I will perform together with Chelsea Allen and Daigo Nakai at Dizzy’s Jazz Club. For me personally, this will be a special moment.

I experienced my first jam session in Melbourne there as well.

Date/time: 19 March 2013, 8:00pm–10:30pm.

The ishs/Allen Project

Please welcome a new band: The ishs/Allen Project!

This is another alliance of myself and Chelsea Allen. The current line-up is a quartet comprising of ourselves with Paul Bonnington (bass) and Ee Shan Pang (trumpet). Paul has played with me on numerous occasions, including subbing for Daigo Nakai in our trio, and I was so impressed with his interpretation of my pieces. That’s made him perfect for TiAP. Ee Shan and I have mainly played together with MOU, playing contemporary jazz pieces. So, this makes her a great part of the band.

Our first appearance will be at Grampians Jazz Festival 2013. We will perform my new compositions. See you there!
