Show Details

Sydney's world-roots-jazz quartet The Vampires launched their sixth album, 'Pacifica' in 2019. The album followed up on the success of their 2017 album 'The Vampires Meet Lionel Loueke' which was nominated for an ARIA Award and shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize.

Combining risk-taking improvisation, sophisticated compositions and an uncanny sense of dialogue between the sax-trumpet frontline, the band has developed a style of its own that effortlessly combines influences from all corners of the world. No matter how sophisticated or adventurous their music can be, there is always a strong, even hypnotic, groove holding it all together.

The band is now dispersed around the globe, with bassist Alex Boneham living in Los Angeles (since 1994, when he was invited to study at the Thelonious Monk Institute, which has allowed him to study and perform with such greats as Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter) and trumpeter Nick Garbett living in Italy, so this is a great chance to experience their performance as a quartet. This special vault session features a recording of the band performing at Bird's Basement in 2019.

Band members:
Nick Garbett (trumpet)
Jeremy Rose (saxophones and bass clarinet)
Alex Boneham (bass)
Alex Masso (drums, percussion)
