Three week res at the 303: Mark Shepherd (Solo) & Josh Kelly Trio

  • 303 High Street Northcote, VIC, 3070 Australia (map)

Three week improv takeover at the 303 featuring a different group with a solo act each week. This week:

Mark Shepherd Solo

Josh Kelly Trio

A 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. Ideas from each movement are used to inform contemporary jazz compositions that are rooted in these traditions, but expand on them through extended harmonic and rhythmic tools influenced by the modern Melbourne and New York jazz scenes. The music is written over set rhythmic and modal frameworks, to allow the trio to embellish and expand on rhythms and counterpoint melodies over many repeats. The rhythm cycles, or grooves are influenced by jazz and traditional folk music, including African and traditional Korean music. The band features:

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