Marc Hannaford New York Trio

  • Wollongong Conservatorium of Music Murphys Avenue Keiraville, NSW, 2500 Australia (map)

Marc Hannaford - piano; Simon Jermyn - bass; Satoshi Takeishi - drums

If by chance you were wondering what an advanced, contemporary, improvised, virtuosic music performance might sound like, a decade or more into the future, this album provides a definite possibility.
— John McBeath (The Weekend Australian)

Startling . . . one of the most forward-thinking jazz musicians in his harmonic and rhythmic conception, as well as being one of the most engaging pianists we have.
— John Shand (Sydney Morning Herald)

Pianist Marc Hannaford has established himself in the fiercely competitive New York jazz and improvised music scene since his arrival from Australia in 2013 as one of the most original musicians on the scene. Winner of the 2013 Music Council of Australia’s Freedman Fellowship, the 2013 Jazz “Bell” award for most original album, National Jazz Awards finalist and A.R.I.A. award nominee Hannaford has performed and recorded with improvised music luminaries such as Tim Berne, Tom Rainey, Mark Helias, Tony Malaby, and Ellery Eskelin. His unique compositional and improvising approach has seen him lauded by critics and fellow musicians alike. This concert will mark the first time Hannaford's New York trio will play at the Con as part of national tour.
