March 6 – Grey Wing Trio (SYD). 8pm, $15. Featuring Luke Sweeting (piano), Ken Allars (trumpet) and Finn Ryan (drums). “Music that delves between beautiful songlike forms and free and expressive improvisations.”
March 13 – Mike Price’s Hermoso Sonido (CBR). 8pm, $15. Mike Price, Greg Stott and Stuart King break out the acoustic guitars for a night of Spanish and pop influenced music. Hermoso Sonido (beautiful sound) was formed in 2012 and draws on Mike and Greg’s experience in the great musical melting pot of Barcelona. Rhythm, passion and beauty underpin the group’s performance of original and traditional repertoire.
March 20 - Greg Stott Band (CBR). Details TBA.
March 27 - A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Orchestra (SYD). 8pm, $15. A 7-piece ensemble of Sydney-based jazz musicians who perform original repertoire with a focus on groove and improvisation.
