Saxophonist and composer Stephen Byth (currently based in NYC) returns to Melbourne to present new original music as well as music inspired by Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet performed by a stellar band featuring Brett Williams (piano), Sam Anning (upright bass), and Kyrie Anderson (drums).

With a body of work that has garnered GRAMMY and ARIA Award nominations, Stephen has quickly established himself as an in demand saxophonist, whose original compositions have been praised by critics for their “gravitas” (The Weekend Australian) and “potent momentum.” (The Age)

Stephen’s musical career has led him to perform and record with Joe Lovano, Paul Grabowsky, Kris Davis, Danilo Perez, Walter Smith III, Barney McAll, Anat Cohen, Julien Wilson, Jamey Haddad, Sam Anning, Alain Mallet, Tony Gould, and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. With a performance resume that has seen him perform throughout the USA, Australia, France, Italy and Japan, Stephen has had the opportunity to play at notable venues including Smalls Jazz Club, Zinc Bar, Snug Harbor, The Jazzlab, and Hamer Hall, as well as performances at the NYC Winter Jazzfest, The Melbourne International Jazz Festival, and La Défense Jazz Festival, where Stephen performed as part of the opening act for Herbie Hancock.
