Alister Spence (keys) & Paul Cutlan (bass clarinet) at the Red Belly Black Restaurant
Tonight we continue our series of nostalgic concerts from the former Red Belly Black Duo Jazz Series.
Alister is recognized as one of Australia’s most original, distinctive contemporary jazz pianists/composers. With a performing and composing career spanning more than 25 years, his wide-ranging talents have led him to perform with and compose for some of the world’s most respected artists in the areas of contemporary music, improvisation, film and theatre.
In recent years he has devoted his energy to writing and performing with his trio, The Alister Spence Trio with Lloyd Swanton (the Necks) on double bass and Toby Hall (formerly with pianist, Mike Nock) drums and glockenspiel. This celebrated group has recorded six CDs (Rufus Records and Alister Spence Music [ASM]) and has a growing international reputation.
Paul Cutlan should be well known to ArtSound listeners, having been a guest on FNL many times. His uniquely expressive voice as a multi-instrumentalist and composer is informed by many styles, including contemporary classical music, world music and jazz. Paul is a long-standing member of the Australian Art Orchestra and ARIA winning world-music group MARA! With these groups he has recorded numerous CDs and has frequently toured Europe, North America, Mexico and Asia.
