The Tom O'Halloran Trio
Saturday 14 September 7.00pm
Fuelled with very strong grooves and a live emotional intensity, this will be a special show. This well-loved Perth group will showcase new compositions and arrangements and others that have developed live over several years but are yet to be recorded. A warm evening ensues – with sonorous moods and musical exploration.
These three musical brothers have built an intriguing creative language between them via countless performances. Modern swinging jazz through to ambient slow landscapes – moods that morph and become burning fast jazz tempos – intricate Latin influenced compositions slow down to become intimate ballads. The music is extremely listenable and melodic, and their compositional voice has been proclaimed unique to this trio only.
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).
In 2017 Tom O’Halloran won the APRA Art Music Award for Jazz work of the Year. He has received two West Australian Music (WAM) Awards: in 2016 for Best Keys and Synth Artist, and in 2014 for Best Jazz 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. His album We Happy Few won the 2009 Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Limelight Magazine award for best jazz achievement.
