The Mike Nock Trio Playing New Tunes and Old! Acoustic and Electric

‘From the Foundry 616 Facebook event: “Now comes another exceptional night as Mike and his trio unveil a swag of dynamic new compositions, combining acoustic and electric sounds in some truly exciting and creative ways. Mike has long been known for pioneering the use of electronics in jazz, notably with his US Quartet The Fourth Way. Come and experience the concepts that Mike has been exploring for decades and enjoy in his own words “something old, something new, something blue”.’

‘The Mike Nock Trio, with bassist Brett Hirst and drummer James Waples, is widely regarded as one of the top modern jazz groups in Australia. The trio’s unique sound includes jazz standards plus Mike’s original compositions, reflecting his wide experience in the top echelon of international jazz performance.’
