Project Launch: The Josh Kelly Trio

A new trio lead by Melbourne saxophonist, Josh Kelly, which draws influence from two pivotal movements in jazz from the late 50’s: modal jazz and free jazz. The trio expands on major ideas from each of these movements, while incorporating some more unique influences such as the rhythmic interplay of modern Australian jazz and the modal concepts found in traditional Korean music. Josh has used these concepts and influences to compose music specifically for this trio, balancing sections of free improvisation with strong improvisation structures based on modal and rhythmic concepts. The band features:

Josh Kelly – Alto Saxophone
Hiroki Hoshino – Double Bass
Maria Moles – Drum Kit
