Anything but your standard Big Band.
Three parts vocals, ten parts horn and four parts rhythm – their all-star line-up features some of the best young jazz musicians hitting the Australian jazz scene today. This talented group of Illawarra musicians are led by trombonist Des Cannings and are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year with their debut album featuring music written and arranged by Paddy Kelly, Callum Burns, Wal Gregory and Des Cannings.
Members of the band have become the top call players in bands including The Sydney Women’s Jazz Collective, The Sydney Jazz Orchestra, and The Dan Barnett Big Band as well as leading their own groups both in Wollongong and Sydney.
