Pianist Tal Cohen (USA) returns to Perth for a 3 night residency with a rotating line-up of Perth’s finest players at The Ellington Jazz Club.
This first night sees Cohen reunited with long time collaborators Pete Jeavons (double bass) and Ben Vanderwal (drums) for one night only. The last time this trio of heavy hitters played together was an unforgettable evening of mastery and this one promises to be the same.
Be in the room for a night of standards and exploratory music not to be missed!
