Ben Winkelman Trio: Balance Album Launch

Jazz pianist and composer Ben Winkelman presents music from his new trio album Balance, which has been described by Downbeat as “one big, interconnected thing of beauty”. His writing explores diverse musical interests filtered through a jazz perspective: Afro-Cuban, gospel and classical music, with a focus on Latin rhythms in odd meters. Joining him are long-term colleagues Ben Vanderwal on drums and Sam Anning, winner of the 2015 National Jazz Award, on bass. A former Melbourne resident, Ben now lives in New York City. He has released five trio albums to wide acclaim: his second, The Spanish Tinge, won the AIR Award for Best Independent Jazz Release; his first was nominated for an Australian Jazz Bell Award; and his third and fourth albums were nominated for AIR Awards. He was a finalist in the National Jazz Awards, and has toured in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.

BALANCE ALBUM LAUNCH
FRIDAY 25 OCTOBER 7:30

STANDARD: $29

"The intellectual meets the intuitive by design throughout the entirety of Balance as Winkelman’s trio of equals, perpetually seeking a state of equilibrium, approach joyful swing, hard-hitting rock and chamber-like inventions as one big, interconnected thing of beauty." - Ed Enright, Downbeat (USA), Editor's Pick

"Pianist Ben Winkelman's fifth album is so good that, ironically, its overwhelming brilliance may limit its appeal. It is so innovative, and played with such power, that the listener is left open-mouthed." - Eric Myers, The Australian

4 stars. "Together, these three tackle thorny thoughts, essay beauty with singular style, and swing hard right down the line at various points in the program. Bouncing between different moods and themes in short order, this trio never misses a beat." - Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz (USA)
