10 years celebrated with 10 new works for 10 members.
Formed in 2007, the Johannes Luebbers Dectet (JLD) is a jazz chamber group focussed on the nexus between jazz and classical traditions.
Combining jazz improvisation, orchestral instrumentation and a diverse compositional language, JLD has released two albums, resulting in two jazz ‘Bell’ awards and an APRA/AMC Art Music Award. This year JLD celebrates 10 years of innovative musical activity. The performance features 10 newly commissioned works, each a feature for one of the 10 members, and each written in collaboration with the featured artist. Ten years celebrated with 10 new works for their 10 members. This is 10 × 10 × 10.
