We’re so excited to be returning to the Ellington stage with a group of incredible collaborators: Macshane, Chelsea Cullen, and for the first time, Kruger James. It’s been a blast making music with these three amazing musicians — hope you can be there to enjoy it with us!
Stay tuned for some clips for our most recent outing — see you on AUGUST 21!
TRISK is one of Perth’s premier improvising ensembles, well known for the infectious camaraderie and fiery musical rapport between bassist Nick Abbey, drummer Daniel Susnjar, and pianist Chris Foster.
These three renowned musicians have been repeatedly recognised by WAM, ABC, Freedman Fellowships, and the Jazz Bell Awards, including the recent 2018/2019 WAM Jazz Song of the Year. Between them, they have shared the stage with the likes of Pharrell, Chick Corea, John Scofield, Steve Miller, Take 6, Gloria Gaynor, Dave Grusin, Joshua Redman, Dave Douglas, Terence Blanchard, Bobby McFerrin, Optamus, Coin Banks, Macshane, Drapht, Downsyde, James Morrison, and Dave Guy and Ian Hendrickson-Smith (from Sharon Jones).
The trio present high-energy and spontaneous shows influenced by hip-hop, jazz, pop, folk, R&B, and world musics, fusing their unique sound with guest singers, instrumentalists, and MC’s. Fresh off the back of some exciting collaborations, expect an entertaining night of great new original musical and special guests, as this not-to-be-missed trio tune up towards their late-2019 studio recording.
