Speedball returns

Speedball 16by9
Page added Jun 1, 2017 Updated Jun 5, 2017

Perth outfit Speedball make a welcome return with a new CD. They're also due to preview the work at the Melbourne International Jazz Fest.

Playlist Information

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

Originally the brainchild of both Carl Mackey and Mat Jodrell, Speedball formed in 2000 alongside Perth stalwarts Grant Windsor (piano), Sam Anning (bass) and Daniel Susnjar (drums). They've got a new record coming out called We Have Moved, and we'll take a listen to a sample on this episode.

There's also a recent solo recording from US guitarist Ralph Towner - inspired by the essence of Bill Evans' iconic piano trio. And - on top of that - UK pianist Django Bates marks 50 years of The Beatles LP Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band.

Gee was I awestruck by this outfit during Jazztrack! Their take-me-on, no hype BlueNote era sound is refreshing delight to the ear and reminds me warmly of the gutsy jazz I heard as a teen. (When many others of my gen were Beatles-obsessed, this was the sort of material that caught my ear.)
Thanks guys and drive on hard!

PS: By the way, nothing personal against the Beatles. They were astonishing in their wondrous way. It was just that I was one of those geeks heading down another road back then.
