Quentin Angus Quintet (USA/AUS)

The State of Things Album Launch

Described by critics as a “lord of the strings “(Michael Dwyer, The Age) and “the future of jazz composition “(Paul Williams, ASCAP), award- winning guitarist /composer Quentin Angus is one of Australia’s brightest stars on the international circuit.

Having firmly cemented his place in the NYC jazz scene over the past decade, Angus returns home with his brand new album, The State of Things, and a stellar all -Australian line up.

Sharing the stage with Angus will be some of Australia’s brightest stars, including Jo Lawry-best known for her work with Sting, Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel.

Featuring deeply emotive song craft, lyricism and colossal grooves, The State of Things courageously reflects upon the challenges of our times, drawing the listener into a world of light and shade. This is a bold statement from an expat on the rise.

Band Members:

Pianist Steve Barry

Bassist Sam Anning

Drummer Ben Vanderwal


What are critics saying about the new album?

“One of my favourite albums to date so far! A selection of beautiful original compositions, outside of the box arrangements of jazz standards and a stellar band” - Ruth Fisher (Jazz FM, UK)

“A force on the scene in New York. The crisp clarity of his playing on The State of Things, along with the cohesion of the group he has assembled, speaks volumes.” - Nate Chinen (WBGO/New York Times)
