Two of Sydney's finest improvising groups share a special double bill at Sydney's finest jazz establishment...

/ "breathtaking musical dexterity" (Pitchfork)
/ Rarely does a group blend electronic styled rhythms, indie rock riffs, jazz influenced improvisation and a post-punk attitude with the ease they do and after the acclaimed release of their third album New Bodies on Temporary Residence Ltd. (along with their much hyped live performances around Australia), this is their final set for 2018.

/ "high-wire music making" (The Sydney Morning Herald)
/ With a history of 20 years, the Alister Spence Trio perform with a seamless improvising language creating luminous sound-scapes that are dark, lyrical, textured and endlessly surprising. Nominated for the 2018 APRA AMCOSArt Music Award for Excellence in Jazz, their most recent album Not Everything But Enough has been described as ‘music bordering on a jazz masterpiece’
