Pat Jaffe Sextet
Thursday, March 31, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Doors open at 7:00 pm
Pianist/composer Pat Jaffe returns to the Jazzlab with his sextet, featuring some of the most exciting young voices on the Melbourne scene. Pat will be joined by some of his oldest musical friends – Flora Carbo (alto saxophone), Andrew Saragossi (tenor saxophone), Callum Mintzis (trombone), Robbie Finch (bass) and Soren Maryasin (drums) – to reinterpret compositions from his debut album, ‘Eldorado’. Pat was the recipient of the 2020 Allan Zavod Performers’ Award and has recorded with the Monash Art Ensemble and Academy Award winning singer-songwriter Markéta Irglová. In 2020, he released his debut album ‘Eldorado’, which was recorded in Reykjavík with the stellar Icelandic chamber ensemble, the Siggi String Quartet.
“His music blends elements of jazz, modern classical, and minimalist pianism, falling somewhere between Brad Mehldau and Australian neo-classical pianist Luke Howard. There’s something in these woven melodies and their relaxed timing that calms the soul when peace is needed most.” – Headphone Commute (UK)
