Ross McHenry Trio 2018

Thursday 29 March 2018

Ross McHenry is a composer, bass player and record producer whose work forms a part of the ongoing international discourse on creative improvised music, its history and its future.

His original compositions encompass a broad range of styles including jazz, afrobeat, contemporary electronic and sample based music. Ross’ work reflects the unique and changing cultural landscape of Australian creative music and aims to explore the idea of modern Australian cultural identity within the context of an increasingly interconnected global musical landscape.

Known for his work in Australia as the leader of afro-jazz ensemble Shaolin Afronauts and as a solo artistm Ross has performed extensively around Australia and traveled the world collaborating with many artists including Mark de Clive Lowe, Myele Manzanza, Matthew Sheens, Marcus Strickland, Corey King, Duane Eubanks, Tivon Pennicott, Eddie Bo and Marva Whitney.

Joining Ross on this new venture are long time collaborators, NZ drumming powerhouse and First Word label mate, Myele Manzanza, and NY based multi-award winning Australian pianist, Matthew Sheens.

The trio join us as they tour their recently released and critically acclaimed record The Outsiders.
