Saxophonist, composer and soon-to-be doctor of Cuban folkloric music, Gai Bryant has been a stalwart of the Australian jazz scene for nearly 20 years. Her virtuosic skills as an instrumentalist and composer have seen her play beside some of the all-time greats such as Mark Simmons, Sandy Evans, Jim McNeely and Don Burrows (to name a few) as well as lead her own groups on tours throughout Australia and the world to critical acclaim. For her debut performance at the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music, she has brought together an illustrious group of contemporaries including Danny Carmichael, Jeremy Sawkins, Brendan Clarke and Paul Dericott to form the Gai Bryant Quintet. With tunes ranging from contemporary grooves, basic blues and Cuban-influenced songs this is sure to be a special night of jazz.
