I had a blast at the Perth Jazz festival over the weekend - many thanks to See-Saw magazine for this nice review of the triple bill solo piano concert that also featured the mighty Tom O’Halloran and Satoko Fujii (JPN).
Sydney composer Steve Barry took the stage first and displayed masterful expertise, playing music from his recent solo album Hatch. His music was good evidence of his multi award winning talent. He started with a soft melodic number that transported me into a harmonious sense of peace. Then followed the cheeky insertion of a delightful interlude he described as ‘a little something’ followed by a tribute to Thelonious Monk.
