Members of The Alan Lee/Jo Abbott Jazz Quartet
Alan is one of Australia's foremost performers on his chosen instrument, the vibraharp. He began his jazz career in the early fifties as a rhythm guitarist, but found his 'voice', the vibraharp, in 1957 and formed his own quartet in 1959.
Melbourne based pianist/composer Jo Abbott studied classical piano with Pamela Page (Qld University) and Stephen Savage (Qld Conservatorium) and received her Bachelor of Music from Qld Conservatorium.
Ivan Rosa has been active in the Melbourne jazz scene for over 15 years. His solid time keeping and inventive soloing make him a popular studio and on-stage sideman.
A stalwart of the Melbourne jazz and improvised music scene, Ben is one of Melbourne's most sought after drummers. Renowned for his delicate touch at the drums, he has graced the stages in the UK and North America.
