After a highly successful east coast tour of Australia in 2016 the Joe Farnsworth Prime Time Quartet are returning for an encore tour in May 2017. Led by celebrated New York drummer Joe Farnsworth , the quartet features the cream of Australian jazz with iconic tenor saxophonist Dale Barlow, award winning bassist Brendan Clarke and Sydney's most swingin' jazz pianist John Harkins. Farnsworth is considered one of the top jazz drummers in the world today having appeared on over 70 albums and has frequently shared the stage with such illustrious company as McCoy Tyner, Pharaoh Sanders, Harold Mabern, Benny Golsen and Eric Alexander to name a few. Farnsworth is dedicated to the great tradition of jazz drumming conceived by the likes of Max Roach, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Billy Higgins and Arthur Taylor. The Joe Farnsworth Prime Time Quartet astounded audiences with their high energy and world class performances last time around and will no doubt deliver more of the same this time around!
Last years performance at Foundry 616 in Sydney was recorded and has been released and is available as Brendan Clarke & Joe Farnsworth Prime Time In Sydney. It will be available on CD at the performances and is also available to download at https://54records.com.au/prime-time-in-sydney or on iTunes.
