Now based in Hobart, veteran drummer Ted Vining is an important figure in jazz circles for forming two long-running ensembles: the Ted Vining Trio (1970-2006) and Musiikki Oy (renamed as Blow in 2000).Now an energetic 83, his achievements were recognised with the Hall of Fame award at the 2017 ‘Bell’ Australian Jazz Awards.

With the passing of bassist Barry Buckley, the Trio became “Impressions”, with younger bassist Gareth Hill joining Bob Sedergreen (piano) and Vining (who have a 40 year association), but have reverted back to their ‘trademark’ name. This Trio has maintained a great deal of the trademark interplay, humour and swing of its predecessor on both standards and some originals. With the addition on Peter Harper (tenor saxophone), Ian Dixon (trumpet) and Adrian Sherriff (bass trombone), the trio will become part of the long-running “Blow” ensemble, which performs originals by Harper, and has produced several albums.
