All that Jazz
The latest and most compelling new voice in Australian jazz, saxophonist, composer, and arranger Stephen Byth (OW2012) has released Reparations, a hit debut album. Described as a ‘call-to-arms, reflecting its composer’s issues at the forefront of contemporary Australia’, the album brings together diverse influences spanning from John Coltrane to Béla Bartók to Andrea Keller. The seamless quality of the music is even more remarkable given it was recorded during lockdown, with musicians remotely adding their parts. Congratulations Stephen.
