For Ever

Performer: Drums, Composer

The idea for this recording came about after the Alan Lee Quartet reunion concert on the closing night of the 2014 Stonnington Festival in Melbourne, which saw the vibraphonist in collaboration with old friends Ted Vining, Tony Gould and Derek Capewell.

2 Pinots 2 Pales and 2 Hours

Performer: Drums, Composer

2 Pinots, 2 Pales and 2 Hours later, with little or no discussion, certainly no rehearsal, five pieces of spontaneous improvised music and three standard compositions were recorded with outstanding results, only achievable when three dedicated jazz musicians get together for the sole purpose of making quality music.

Performing as The Ted Vining Trio

Drummer Ted Vining, pianist Bob Sedergreen and bassist Barry Buckley first got together in August 1969, and have played around the world ever since as a high sought-after rhythm section. More about The Ted Vining Trio

Our Favourite Things

Performer, Composer

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.

For Elvin...

Performer: Drums

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.

Performing as Christopher Young Quartet

A new collaboration with some of Christopher Young’s oldest collaborators — acoustic bassist Nick Haywood (from the Lewis and Young Ensemble) and guitarist Tom Fryer, with the addition of the great veteran drummer, Ted Vining. More about Christopher Young Quartet

Brood Groove

Performer: Drums

"One of the most rewarding sessions I've recorded for Jazztrack. Maybe the stars aligned that day...the musicians really listening and responding to each other. It's music that surprises and explores."
