Down Under!

Federation Square - Melbourne

I’m over in Australia at the moment, Melbourne to be exact. Beautiful fall weather here lately. The Melbourne Jazz Festival is on this week; last night I went to see the Paul Grabowsky Quartet, playing some pretty modern and challenging pieces in a suitably modern hall at Federation Square.

Update: A couple nights later I saw a double bill of the Pharoah Sanders Quartet and McCoy Tyner Trio with Dave Liebman.  Sanders did an odd set touching on all bases, with a long version of ‘Giant Steps’ and finishing with some audience participation.  I prefered Tyner & Liebman, who created a more cohesive set while including some short Tyner solo pieces.
