Guitarist Nash Lee moved to Melbourne from Byron Bay with Twelve Tone Diamonds around two decades ago making a memorable impact with that band, other ensembles such as Murphy’s Law and Shannon Barnett Quartet, and his own groups (such as Dressage). He was also a finalist in the National Guitar Jazz Awards at the 2007 Wangaratta Festival. After a break from performing, Lee made a welcome return to the jazz scene with in recent years, demonstrating that he is remains a creative soloist.

In Rabid Hawk he combines with Julien Wilson (tenor saxophone), Charlie Rank (bass) and Sam Bates (drums) to perform Lee’s originals. To hear them is to experience the chemistry that can only come from decades of friendship and musical collaboration.

‘Lee’s playing gripped me where in one racing passage he tightened his lyrical sound, made the chord more dissonant and distorted, until he seemed to meet resistance in the air.’ – John Clare, SIMA, Nov. 2007

The second set presents the Australian debut of adventurous Italian guitarist Francesca Naibo performing an exploratory virtuoso solo set.
A guitarist from Vittorio Veneto (Italy) based in Milan, she moves fluently across all the different conjugations of the guitar, from the classic, the electric, to the fretless and the pedal steel. Involved in research for solo performance, she is focused on exploring sound in the divergent yet sonically similar fields of free improvisation, contemporary music, and classical repertoire. She’s particularly interested in using both the acoustic and the electric nature of her instrument, adventuring from roaring drones till microscopic vibrations.
