Jacinta's Song

Featuring an impressive lineup of musicians, including the ARIA-winning pianist, Andrea Keller, guitarist Steve Magnusson and percussionist extraordinaire, Peter Neville, Jacinta's Song is the new CD from multi-saxophonist / composer Jenny Game-Lopata.

With a playlist of entirely original works, you'll discover that Game-Lopata's unique style blends together contemporary jazz, improvisation and classical techniques of composition, both modern and traditional.

And whether it's experimenting with harmony and rhythms, traditional forms such as the sonata, and composing for instruments as diverse as the Middle Eastern darbuka, Jamaican steel drum and marimba - you can be sure that Game-Lopata is creating a sound that is very new, very fresh, and quintessentially Australian.
