Penny King Quartet - More New Sounds

Friday 23 September 7.00pm

Join long time musical collaborators Penny King, Tom O’Halloran, Pete Jeavons and Michael Perkinsas they present a program of original music and arrangements, including some freshly penned material. The group will be exploring an eclectic range of music, bringing grace, refinement and signature sounds developed through years of making music together.

One of Western Australia’s leading jazz vocalists, Penny has been a firm favourite of jazz audiences for over 20 years. Known for her engaging stage presence, and a sound ranging from rich swinging tones through to haunting and fragile melodies, she has  been a regularly featured performer at the Perth International Jazz Festivals, and has also appeared at the Fairbridge Festival, Rottnest’s ‘Jazz on the Rock Festival’, the York Jazz Festival, the Beaufort St. Festival, Fremantle International Jazz Festival and the Jazz By The Bay Festival, Dunsborough. In 2016 Penny travelled to Melbourne for a show at the Paris Cat Jazz Club.

 Penny’s quintet’s debut album ‘Journey’ was released in December 2013, and was shortlisted for best Australian jazz vocal album at the 2014 Australian Jazz ‘Bell’ Awards. The album features both original compositions, and original arrangements of jazz and contemporary standards.

King is simply an excellent tradition-rooted jazz singer, whose phrasing and scat are jazz elements delivered with rich, pitch-perfect, humanly nuanced ease’ Katie Bull, The New York City Jazz Record, August 2014.

Penny King is a fine musician…. Her pitch is excellent, accompanied by a chrystal clear and authentic tone. Her soloing is always inventive and she nails the shifts in dynamic intensity in all the right places’. Chris McNulty, Australianjazz.net, December 2014
