Event details

‘The most exciting male jazz singer Australia has produced since Vince Jones.’ Jazz Australia

If love songs leave you instantly picturing weeping violin melodies and earth-shattering vocals, acclaimed jazz vocalist and composer Josh Kyle is about to set you on a changed course.

Created with renowned composer and arranger Andrew Murray, Kyle’s new song cycle sees his lush vocals accompanied by four of Australia’s finest trombonists. The trombone opens a new playground of sonic possibilities, in a poignant exploration of the trials and tribulations of modern love.

The cycle weaves between jazz and improvised music to new classical and the avant-garde, fusing lyrics and wordless singing over the rich bed of four trombones. Fine-tuned harmonies and rippling brass sequences neatly capture the dizzying interiority and all-consuming nature of romance.

Trombone Song Cycle was awarded the Jazz Work of the Year at the 2019 APRA Art Music Awards.

‘Josh Kyle’s unfailingly beautiful tone, crystal clear articulation and superfine phrasing announces a singer with a real jazz sensibility.’ Jazzwise (U.K.)
