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.
This is the first Ted Vining Trio CD release since the passing of bass player Barry Buckley in 2006. His replacement Gareth Hill, along with Bob Sedergreen and Ted, recorded this album following a very successful tour of jazz venues around south-east Australia during August 2015.
This live recording of the Ted Vining Trio captures a real performance. The long-running Ted Vining Trio comprises Ted Vining on drums, Bob Sedergreen playing piano, and Barry Buckley on bass. Guitarist Stephen Magnusson makes a special guest appearance on two tracks.
Renowned jazz singer Linda Cable performs a collection of scintillating moody ballads and up-tempo jazz songs.
As a slave to lyrics, this album is a mixture of standards both pop and jazz with great lyrics, and three original songs written from the heart. Loving jazz standards I find it very hard not to record Gershwin, Rogers and Hart, Porter, Berlin, as through them and the American songbook I have honed my craft.
