This special concert is a celebration of the 82nd birthday – and ongoing career – of the highly respected

pianist/composer/educator Dr. Tony Gould, who retired from his fulltime position as Professor of Music at Monash University at the end of 2015, but has continued to teach.

Gould is possibly the most ‘formally’ recognised figure to work in the Australian jazz scene (although he refers to his music as “post-jazz”), with a Two Year Australia Council Fellowship over 2006/2007, and a Don Banks Fellowship in 2009 (as well as an Order of Australia), plus the 2011 Australian Jazz Award “Hall of Fame”.

For this occasion, he is joined by longtime colleagues Ben Robertson (double bass) and Tony Floyd (drums) to play two sets with two different “groups”: one with guests, Angela Davis (alto saxophone) and James Sherlock (guitar), and the other with Ilaria Crociani (vocals) and Mirko Guerrini (tenor saxophone).
