2018. The late, great sound engineer and sonic soul of Bar Oussou Dave Rule stood on the sidewalk, took a drag of his hand rolled cigarette and queried “so when are you coming back to play here Max?”. Max’s eyes glazed over. He replied that he didn’t know. The question from his late friend echoed in his head for years onward.

After a 4 year tendinitis/COVID hiatus, saxophonist and composer Max König returns to perform with his band at his favourite bar in Melbourne.

Drawing inspiration from the giants of jazz and the great canon of jewish and middle eastern music, Max König and his ensemble aim to create a distinctive sound by combining ancient tradition with modern sounds and improvisation.

Max König - Tenor and Soprano Saxophones

Shai Martin - Keyboards

Andrew Doo - Drums
