Scott Tinkler’s FOLK, first broadcast live on Jazz Up Late from the 20th annual Wangaratta Festival of Jazz in 2009. This is a work that contrasts through-composed sections with passages of free improvisation – utilizing the rather unusual instrumentation of two trumpets, two guitars, two drum kits, double bass and piano.
Presented by the Australian Art Orchestra and the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz, the music is not what some people might call folk music, but it is the music of the folk in the trumpeter and composer’s life. The music reflects the people they are, the places they’re from and the relationships they have with each other. The ensemble (featuring some of Australia’s most respected improvisers) represents many years of exploration and musical discovery – not just in the many hours of work done as individuals but in the countless hours of playing and discussing music collectively.

The players:

Scott Tinkler / Phil Slater; trumpets
Carl Dewhurst / Steve Magnusson; guitars
Ken Edie / Simon Barker; drums
Philip Rex; double bass
Marc Hannaford; piano

Scott Tinkler's FOLK, broadcast on Jazz Up Late - Friday, August 5, 2010 at 10.30pm.  Repeated on Monday, August 9, 2010 at 9pm.
