  • Johnston Street Jazz 81 Johnston Street Annandale, NSW, 2038 Australia (map)

"Improper Citation" features Charlie Sundborn (Saxophone), Miles Rooney (Trumpet), Matt Harris (Piano), Oscar Peterson (Bass) and Chloe Kim (Drums). 

Formed in 2016 after discovering the common interest in jazz-influenced experimental improvisations, as well as the sounds and textures from diverse musical traditions and rhythms, ‘Improper Citation’ has been an emerging ensemble in Sydney, performed at Hibernian House and ConVerge (with a featured artist, bassist/improviser, Clayton Thomas) in 2017. 

Improper Citation is honored to present their music on 15th March 2018, at Johnson Street Jazz.
