Josh Kelly Trio @ Uptown Jazz Cafe

A new trio lead by Melbourne saxophonist, Josh Kelly, which draws on the influences of 60’s modal jazz, and applies these ideas to a contemporary context. Josh has composed music specifically for this trio, which draws influence from the American modal jazz tradition of John Coltrane, Joe Henderson etc. while expanding on those ideas to incorporate some more contemporary concepts. Josh draws on these modal jazz ideas, as well as traditional Korean music concepts and combines them with a contemporary aesthetic of rhythmic interplay and a balance of free improvisation and modal improvising structures. The band features:

Josh Kelly – Alto Saxophone
Hiroki Hoshino – Double Bass
James McLean – Drum Kit
