Carl Dewhurst, Chris Johnstone, Brendan Clarke & Mark Sutton present the music of Montgomery, Green, Burrell and Benson
The Canberra School of Music has produced many talented jazz musicians who have not only gone on to perform at the highest levels, but have also become some of the most important music educators in Australia. Among this alumni are Carl Dewhurst , Chris Johnstone , Brendan Clarke and Mark Sutton , who will combine their years of experience to present a night jazz guitar fans cannot afford to miss.
Playing the music of 60’s guitar greats Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell and George Benson, guitarists Carl and Chris will display their deep understanding and mastery of this soulful and swinging period in jazz, backed by an outstanding rhythm section that will leave you with no choice but to be caught up in the groove!
Performing in a variety of formats from solo to full swinging quartet, you will witness a maturity of musicianship and expression that only comes from years of experience and deep connection through respect, not only for each other, but for the music they will be representing.
Carl and Chris have long held a musical friendship which began in 1997 when they met at the Ike Isaacs International Jazz Guitar Competition as finalists, and connected over their love of jazz guitar in an afterhours jam. This concert, in part, is a testament to their musical friendship which has lasted for over 20 years and Chris would particularly like to acknowledge the influence Carl has had on his playing during this time.
Be transported back to the soulful sixties with one of the most exciting collaborations you’ll hear this year!
