With trombonist James Macaulay (winner of the National Jazz Award 2017)

now living in Tokyo, this is an unique opportunity to hear this ensemble

during his brief visit to Melbourne. Trumpeter, composer and eternal

sideman Eugene Ball took almost 20 years to form a group under his own

name, so it comprises some significant talents in drummer James McLean

(winner of the 2017 Freedman Jazz Fellowship), and electric bassist Mick

Meagher. Since the release of their debut album, Hi(gh) Curious (which

John Clare described as “one of the most startling jazz records”), they

have appeared at the Wangaratta, Stonnington and Perth jazz festivals.

For this concert, the 4tet will perform predominantly new material, which

they have developed in recent months. Hi(gh) Curious can be found
