Four fine contemporary musicians sitting around the kitchen table playing with Lego is not the image one has of a Jazz quartet, but that is what Niko Schauble and his Quattro Club did when they were preparing their first work.  Building with Lego represents the musical building that takes place in the quartet, linking different textures and colors to create their final creation – music that crosses the borders between contemporary composition concepts and jazz improvisation.

An Improvising Chamber Music Ensemble, Quattro Club has no chordal instrument, instead working with Drums (Nike Schauble), Saxes (Mirko Guerrini), Woodwinds (Joel Hands-Otte) and Tuba (Dan Gordon).

Hear in this JOYcast what Niko had to say about improvising, the ability to appreciate music ‘LIVE’, and the challenges of putting together a new ensemble with ‘listening’ musicians.

Quattro Club performed at this years Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues.

Niko Schauble was guest of Bent Notes on Sunday October 7, 2018

Fem Belling decided very early in life that she needed to be seen and be part of the front line as the Solo artist!

Moving out of the Youth Orchestra was the step that Fem took towards her future career in Musical theatre and the fluid world of Jazz.

Her latest project builds upon the objective to increase the visibility of women in music with a project called Kon Shes (pronounced like conscious! but with the female term “Shes” being a hint to the project objective)  which will be premiered at this years Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival on Friday December 7 at The Jazzlab.

Hear what Fem had to say about women in Jazz, and the project being “21st Century Woke Jazz straight out of Melbourne” and “Groove-based Politically Conscious Jazz

Fem Belling took time out of what sounded like very a fun rehearsal to chat with David Moyle on Bent Notes on Sunday November 11, 2018

Guitarist and composer Alex Stuart moved from Australia to Paris in 2005.  He creates cross-cultural music blending jazz, rock, pop and groove with the music of many cultural traditions.

Following the tragic events of the November 2015 attacks in Paris Alex noted the defiant nature of the Parisian people which inspired him to write a piece entitled Aftermath.

Aftermath was the inspiration for a new album of the same name – a collection of pieces inspired by world events – the dark turning points and the joyfulness and beauty of life.

Alex spoke with David Moyle during Bent Notes on JOY 94.9  about the album, his exposure to so much music from his Dad’s multi-genre vinyl collection, and the joy of performing at this years Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues.
