John Hollenbeck and Theo Bleckmann May 2010

  • 8 May Melbourne International Jazz Festival
  • 10 May The Basement Sydney

John Hollenbeck is one of the rare artists who have mastered the tradition of big band composition while crossing aesthetic borderlines and speaking directly to the time we live in today. “eternal interlude”, the Grammy-nominated  follow-up to “A Blessing” and the second CD by John Hollenbeck’s Large Ensemble, is an audacious example of the power of big band jazz to express emotions well beyond swing-era clichés.
