At the top of this week's show, some new music from the Melbourne-based trio Refraction - led by drummer and composer Chris Broomhead.

Playlist Information

A playlist and listen-again audio are available for 1 month by clicking the play button above after the broadcast.

Refraction draw inspiration from both pop lyricism and melody and express those ideals in an improvised and groove-focused context. Drummer Chris Broomhead leads the ensemble, which also includes Brenton Foster on piano and Jordan Tarento on bass. Their latest record Reimaged continues the concepts set-out in past albums, with their originals leaving plenty of space for collective improvisation.

We'll also hear from the late Graham Wood on piano, plus tunes from various vocalists - including Michelle Nicolle and Vince Jones.

Presented by James Kennedy
