Page added Oct 2, 2014 Updated Oct 10, 2014

On this episode, we check out some recent collaborations from two Queensland-based ensembles: the trio Trichotomy and Rafael Karlen.

Originally named Misinterprotato, Trichotomy have established themselves as stalwarts of the Brisbane jazz scene. The band includes Sean Foran on piano, Sam Vincent on acoustic bass John Parker on drums, and together they have been recording and performing since they met at the Queensland Conservatorium in 1999. Jazztrack recently caught up with them at the 2014 Brisbane Jazz Festival, and we'll hear their collaboration with UK saxophonist Julian Arguelles.

Saxophonist Rafael Karlen is another Brisbane-based musician, and also a graduate from the Queensland Con. Karlen has recently released an album of compositions for saxophone, piano and strings, and we'll hear from that CD, titled The Sweetness of Things Half-Remembered.

Heading overseas, the Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca draws on various Afro-Caribbean rhythms on his new live recording from New York. We will also hear some recent releases from pianist Fred Hersch, US-based saxophonist Ben Flocks with a take on Bob Dylan, and the new album from the Melbourne-based band 'Blow.'
