JAMES MCLEAN

with Christopher Hale & Sam Gill

Melbourne drummer James McLean is fast establishing a reputation as a leading young voice in jazz and experimental improvised music. In 2016, he took out the national Freedman Jazz Fellowship with a sensational performance at the Opera House – becoming the first drummer to claim the prize in its history.

For his first major Sydney engagement since his Freedman win, he will be presenting new solo works followed by duo and trio pieces with award-winning electric bassist Christopher Hale, and saxophonist Sam Gill.

Praised for his enchanting use of rests and resonance, McLean effortlessly draws the audience into his expansive explorations of sound and rhythm, with virtuosity and creative flair in equal measure.

Expect an exhilarating evening of inspired improvisation, searing guitar and a taste of New York’s downtown!
