Lachlan McKenzie Quintet (Syd/Mel)
Tuesday, September 19, 2023 @ 7:30 pm
Doors open at 7:00 pm
Originally from Brisbane, Lachlan McKenzie relocated to Sydney in 2021. Since this move, Lachlan has had the opportunity to learn from exceptional musicians/educators including Phil Slater, Will Vinson, Matt McMahon, and perform with leading Sydney musicians/groups such as James Morrison, John Harkins, Andrew Robertson Big Band, Hammerhead, Andrew Dickeson, Aaron Blakey, ANJO Youth Big Band, and Dave Panichi Big Band. Lachlan recently toured his quartet to Osaka, Japan to perform at the 25th annual Takatsuki Jazz Street Festival.
Lachlan’s trumpet playing and music is influenced by a wide range of artists and music across the jazz lineage, all the way from Kenny Dorham to Ambrose Akinmusire.
For this rare Melbourne performance, Lachlan has assembled a top-tier ensemble of locals with Carl Mackey on saxophone, Brett Williams on piano, Sam Anning on double bass, and young gun Sydneysider George Greenhill on drums.
