The Julien Wilson Trio was formed in 2004 and received glowing reviews in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age for their premier performances at Sydney’s Jazz:Now Festival and Melbourne’s Half Bent Winter Jazz Festival. They are featured on the albums while you were sleeping (2006) and Trio-Live (2007). They have performed sold out concerts at the Berlin Jazz Festival, Sydney Opera House and Melbourne International Arts Festival, and appeared at festivals in Jakarta, Korea, New Zealand, and throughout Australia. While the instrumentation of the group often invites “French” connotations, the band are all heavily influenced by Brazilian & Argentinean music forms. Despite this love of South American music, the band revels in rubato playing and have created an incredibly intuitive style of unified phrasing.

The trio has a mesmerizing effect on audiences, moving from serene to jagged to dense to angelic in a single breath. Swailing, the follow up album to the immensely popular Trio-Live was released in 2014. Swailing utilized the recording studio and an expanded palette of instruments and sounds to take their music in new directions and was a finalist for the Age Music Victoria Genre Award for Best Jazz Album in 2014. The trio has expanded their repertoire to include material by Ellington, Ornette, Fats Waller, Hermeto Pascoal, and even Jules Massenet.

One of Melbourne’s favourite trios. Rarely seen. Don’t miss out.

“The trio seems to breathe and sigh through their instruments as one. Irresistibly gorgeous.” AllAboutJazz
