Music and Recording

As we entered our sixth lockdown in August 2021,  we felt that this song was particularly relevant to our current situation in Australia and that it may resonate with how many people are feeling at the moment.

August 2020 - this is our third iso-collaborative video by our collective. Minuano (Six-Eight) by Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays is a piece we have all wanted to play for some time and this global situation we find ourselves in presented us with the opportunity to record it.

More COVID-19 lockdowns in Melbourne equals more iso-collaborations (lockdown number 5, July 2021). Here is our cover of the Russell Ferrante & Jimmy Haslip tune 'Motet.'  Arranged for strings and horns.

Februrary 2021 - this is our fifth COVID iso-collaborative video by our collective. It is our cover of Bob Mintzer’s tune ‘Father Time’. It was recorded and produced entirely during Victoria's 3rd lockdown Feb 13 to Feb 17, 2021

November 2020 - this is our fourth iso-collaboration undertaken during Melbourne's 100+ day lockdown. It covers the Pat Metheny tune 'Have You Heard' from the album 'Letter From Home' which won a Grammy award for Best Jazz Fusion Performance in 1990. This time, in addition to our regular lineup, we are privileged to have on board renowned Melbourne guitarist Jack Pantazis as the featured soloist.
