Jazztopad Poland and other adventures
Incredible trip to Europe just complete including amazing gigs at a wonderful festival in Poland, Jazztopad
Scored a lovely mention in Jazzwise review: "anything from card to plastic to stone to water – poured into the tubing of the horn by Australian trumpeter Peter Knight – can produce sounds that buzz with digital-age energy despite the absence of any laptops or iPhones. Knight's ingenuity makes for a thrilling moment by way of his breath control, rhythmic precision and split-second timing, which create the sound of rolling train wheels or a slow revving car engine.”
By Tamara Saulwick, score by Peter Knight. Performed by Tamara Saulwick, Paddy Mann and Peter Knight. Selected for performances at Canadian Stage (Toronto) 2017. Performances in October in Ireland, in Vancouver and Seattle in January and February in 2018
Moons of Jupiter, Paul Grabowsky Sextet
What an incredible band to be part of. The album is out and gigs have been amazing. Check it out here
Hailed as “a monumental work by musicians of great stature” (AusJazz), this project heralds a new direction and new music from Paul Grabowsky, and a renewal of one of the most important relationships in his musical career, with the astounding trumpeter Scott Tinkler plus Erkki Veltheim violin, Dave Beck drums, Phil Rex bass, Peter Knight electronics.
Experimenting with tempo and metre, Moons of Jupiter explores the frontiers of contemporary art music, jazz and experimental rock.
