“an exceptional record by an exceptional ensemble. This is profound, moving and expressive jazz of the highest level”
– Stuart Nicholson, Jazzwise (UK)
THIS WORLD is the stunning debut release from a new collaborative quartet formed by four of Australia’s most established and celebrated jazz musicians. Exceptionally recorded and produced, it features a diverse program of nine exciting new compositions created specifically for this album. THIS WORLD articulates the struggle, strength and sense of hope faced in life each day. Despite this album being the band’s debut, the musicians have enjoyed established relationships with each other in a variety of formats for many years before coming together as a quartet. The shared history and personal connection between them all can be felt in every note.
