Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra
The world's leading young jazz composer, Darcy James Argue and Australian expat pianist Sean Wayland, team up with Australia's leading jazz orchestra to celebrate the Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra's 10th Anniversary. The Mothership's members have dominated Australia's top prizes over the last decade including winner of 3 National Jazz Award Finals; 2 Freedman Fellows and 2 Australian Jazz Artist's of the Year (Bell awards). The music of the Mothership can best be defined as exciting, dynamic and highly original with most of its youthful members being drawn from one of the world's most innovative musician's collective's, Sydney's Jazzgroove Association!
"A wickedly intelligent dispatch from the fading border between orchestral jazz and post-rock and classical minimalism…. Radiates self-assurance, and an almost chilling steadiness of conviction." New York Times
