Jazz Jam Session with the Tom O'Halloran Trio - The Ellington 10th Birthday Celebration
Friday 01 March 11.00pm
Tom O’Halloran leads his own original jazz piano trio outfit and conducts orchestras from time to time, composes experimental music, and plays analogue synthesizers. In 2017 he won the APRA Art Music Award for Jazz work of the Year, and in 2014 won Best Jazz Artist award from WAM, and in 2016 Best Keyboard/Synthesizer artist. In 2012 he received an APRA Australian Art Music award nomination, and in 2011 was a finalist in the Freedman Foundation Jazz Fellowship – where he was featured at the Sydney Opera House.
Tom has two jazz piano trio records to his name, released through the Sydney based Jazzgroove Records label. His album We Happy Few won the 2009 Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Limelight Magazine award for best jazz achievement. Tom regularly tours Australia with this group comprised of Peter Jeavons (double bass) and Daniel Susnjar (drums). Together they have played large venues like the Sydney Opera House and The Promethean Theatre (Adelaide), and also the best jazz clubs in the country – including 505 and The Basement (Sydney), Bennett’s Lane and Paris Cat (Melbourne), and The Ellington Jazz Club (Perth).
Tonight the Tom O’Halloran Trio will perform recent compositions and standards yet to be recorded, and also invite musicians to jam and play till the early hours. Not to be missed!

It’s The Ellington Jazz Club’s 10th Birthday! On this very weekend in 2009, we opened our doors for the first time, and we’ve been filling the venue and the city with beautiful music ever since. We’ve put together a weekend showcasing Perth’s most revered jazz performers in honour of this momentous occasion, and in honour of the late, great Graham Wood, the club’s co-founder.
