This offering from Melbourne sax player Jack Beeche has a lyric approach to all that is cool about alto sax in jazz. With a nod to his forbears, Jack has woven a telling tale of melody and mixed it with the intrigue of the bass-less ensemble.
Golden Blue is the first solo album from Melbourne saxophonist Jack Beeche. It comes at the culmination of his post-graduate research into improvised counterpoint, featuring lyrical two-part solos and exploratory ensemble interaction.
This album features guitarist Dan Mamrot and drummer Aaron McCoullough in a Paul Motian-esque bass-less trio that expands into quartet with bassist Gareth Hill
