“…this saxophonist surely ranks as one of the best contemporary jazz composers/musicians anywhere” - allaboutjazz.com
Composed and led by Sandy Evans (OAM), RockPoolMirror brings together six of Australia’s leading contemporary improvisers in a musical response to Belinda Webster’s stunning photographs of the Shoalhaven Gorge, NSW. These images travel an evocative journey, from the tranquility of rock formations reflected in still water at dawn, to the darkness of chasms and abysses, at times even revealing surreal, life-like rock warriors.
Photographer Belinda Webster is best known as founding director of Tall Poppies Records. Her narrative gorge images will be projected at this concert, and brought to life by saxophonist and composer Sandy and some of her long-time collaborators. This performance is a rare opportunity to witness the deep musical bonds that these accomplished improvisers have established through their rich history of collaboration.

In this aperitif to the RockPoolMirror CD Launch, artists from the project perform intimate groupings drawn from their interplay in the album. With Satsuki Odamura on 13-stringed koto, Adrian Sherriff surprising with his breadth and agility on bass trombone, and internationally renowned saxophonist Sandy Evans (OAM), the RockPoolMirror Duets promise to be a must-see, must-hear for lovers of improvised music.
