Simon Jeans Quartet - Perth International Jazz Festival
Saturday 10 November 7.00pm
Simon Jeans has recorded and performed around Australia with a number of original jazz and fusion groups (such as Salamander, Thrust, Memory of Elements, Michael Pignéguy Sextet, Frames of Minds), including a number of times at the Wangaratta Jazz & Blues Festival, iconic venues Bennetts Lane Jazz Club (Melbourne) and The Basement (Sydney), as well as concert halls with artists like WASO and James Morrison.
In 2006 the group Salamander performed in Rome, Italy at the Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival, and the following year Simon was one of ten jazz guitar finalists for the National Jazz Awards at Wangaratta.
As well as appearing as a sideman on a dozen or so albums (this past year Memory of Elements’ CD “Now Noise” was named Jazz Work of the Year in APRA’s 2017 Art Music Awards for its composer Tom O’Halloran), Simon has recorded two CDs of his original material – in 2011 his fusion trio thumpR released “Echo Papa Alphabet” (thumpR performed at the Perth International Jazz Festival in 2014) and in 2016 the Simon Jeans Quartet released “Spirograph”, both available at www.simonjeans.com
Featuring the talents of Jamie Oehlers – Saxophone, Karl Florisson – Bass and Daniel Susnjar – Drums, the Quartet performs a mix of original material and eclectic covers, ranging from straight ahead to free jazz, country to pop rock and beyond.
