Tony Gould on the Art of Creative Music
This is a tribute to revered Australian pianist, praised educator and musical thinker Dr Tony Gould, Australia’s first professor of jazz. It comprises an audio CD and bonus one-hour video DVD documentary.
The documentary illustrates Gould’s approach to his collaborations with musicians of his own generation as well as the younger cats Gould plays with and has taught during his long standing career.
The CD presents complete performances of much of the music excerpted in the film. It was recorded at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club and the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon.
Tony Gould is supported by Ben Robertson (bass), Graeme Lyall (alto-sax), Dave Beck (drums), Imogen Manins (cello), Michelle Nicolle (vocal), Robert Burke (tenor-sax), Sam Evans (tabla), Aaron McCullough (drums), Hiroki Hoshino (bass), Ted Vining (drums).
