Pianist Marc Hannaford leads his New York-based trio on their first Australian tour during August 2019. Marc is known for his contemporary and innovative approach to composition and improvisation, which features twisting rhythmic patterns, subtle harmonic shifts, and explosive ensemble playing. He was awarded the prestigious Freedman Fellowship by the Music Trust in 2013, and his most recent recording Can You See With Two Sets of Eyes was described as what “advanced, contemporary, improvised, virtuosic music might sound like, a decade or more into the future” by The Weekend Australian.

This group also includes two improvisers who feature heavily in New York’s jazz and improvised music scene, electric bassist Simon Jermyn and drummer Satoshi Takeishi. Together, the group navigates Marc’s original compositions, which encompass driving loops, morphing textures, and surprising melodic twists. This set of music emerges from years of compositional refinement and collective rehearsal, and the Marc Hannaford Trio looks forward to introducing Australian audiences to both this music and the group.

"Startling …One of the most forward-thinking jazz musicians in his harmonic and rhythmic conception, as well as being one of the most engaging pianists we have."
John Shand (Sydney Morning Herald)

"Hannaford spins lines like unspooled pearls.
Bradley Bambarger"
(Downbeat )
