EMO Live recording at JMI Live Wed 26 and Thursday 27 March

The Enthusiastic Musicians Orchestra (EMO) are recording a new live album over two night this week at JMI Live. This will be their third album and will feature compositions by many of Brisbane's most active Jazz composers and arrangers including Andrew Garton, Josh Hatcher and Wade Gregory. They will record my compositions Drift, which was was a finalist in the JGMO/APRA National Big band Composition Competition a few years ago and My Folk Song which was commissioned for the Q150 Birthday Celebrations in 2009 to mark 150 years of Queensland as an independent state. I'm really looking forward to this gig.

'After many years of wowing Brisbane jazz fans with their original big band repertoire, the band has amassed over 100 pieces specifically written with EMO in mind. EMO will be recording this journey through Brisbane jazz at what has quickly grown to be the go-to Brisbane venue for original improvised music, JMI Live. Many of the pieces to be recorded were debuted at this very venue, so it seems only fitting to bring them back to their spiritual home to be put down on record. With stalwart Brisbane composers and arrangers such as Andrew Garton, Rafael Karlen, Josh Hatcher and Wade Gregory to be featured, the recording sessions promise to be two great nights of sophisticated yet energetic musicianship.'
