Nick Garbett Lontano CD




Lontano features an extraordinary lineup of Australian performers, all master improvisers, each with their own unquestionably unique voice on their instruments. Featuring Peter Farrar (C melody and alto saxophones), Daniel Pliner (piano), ARIA and AIR Award winner Jonathan Zwartz (double bass) and James Waples (drums), the quintet was formed in 2018 in the lead up to the Freedman Fellowship awards, though Garbett has been performing and collaborating with the various members for over 15 years. 
All five pieces on the album are Garbett compositions, four of them composed during the northern winter of 2018/19 while he was living on the remote Italian island of Lampedusa, situated deep in the Mediterranean roughly 200km off the coast of Tunisia. During winter Lampedusa can be an eerily quiet and isolated place to live, with either the cold northerly wind from Europe or the dust laden 'Sirocco' wind from Africa lashing the island for weeks on end. This stark and ruggedly beautiful landscape was the inspiration behind the opening piece 'Lampedusa' and track three 'Lontano'.
Recorded on the 25th of February 2019 by James Kennedy at the ABC studios in Sydney, Lontano is the next step in the evolution of a significant voice on the Australian jazz scene. 
Nick Garbett is an Australian born and raised trumpet player, composer and band leader who has built a diverse and exciting career touring and performing nationally and internationally. After graduating with a Bachelor degree in Jazz Studies from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2005, Nick has immersed himself in an eclectic array of musical styles - from his jazz quartet The Vampires to his reggae outfit The Strides.
