The four of us spend our time playing, listening to, composing, recording, and thinking about jazz music.
Although we all spent our learning years playing together in Sydney, our professional careers have meant that we have moved to different cities around the world.

He has recorded with many groups including The Java Quartet, The Richard Maegraith Band, Selah, and Spike Mason. He has two original jazz albums under his own name, 'Virmalised' and '30. detsember'
When we found out last year that our dates would align in Sydney again we jumped at the chance to record an album. In the months before our get-together we wrote 2 tunes each, thinking of each others musical strengths. We then emailed them to each other so we could learn them. On the day of the recording we met together and recorded the album in the traditional jazz way, playing live and simply capturing the sounds as they happened.
When we listened back we loved it, and so we're now releasing it to you!

As jazz musicians, our challenge is to get the music we make to the people who love to hear it. Pozible helps us overcome this challenge by allowing us to speak dirctly to those people and empower them to directly support the music they love.
