Wednesday June 4, 2008

Matt McMahon - piano
Simon Barker - drums
Phil Slater - trumpet

Matt McMahon, simon Barker, phil slater band of 5 namesDream like piano sequences, overlaid with haunting trumpet, evocative and unearthly. 

Featuring Australia's finest musicians, Band of 5 Names “..strikingly fresh and original, the playing beautifully judged .... They allow the music to unfold without wasting any energy proving how many notes they can play. If you missed this album first time around it’s well worth finding now.”
Adrian Jackson, Rhythms Magazine

“This group is at the cutting edge of contemporary jazz. Their work is highly original and, although based in jazz, takes music in new directions.” Adelaide Advertiser

The music is dreamily minimalist, introspective and mostly tensionless, consisting of textured layers of sound. An important component is Slater’s laptop, used to produce a mysterious ambience that is overlaid by ethereal trumpet and the meditative keyboards of Matt McMahon plus Simon Barker’s percussive effects.
