Experimental Jazz

08 Feb 2018

Following the success of their 2017 LP “Unfold”, The Necks will perform at the Melbourne Recital Centre for one night only on Friday, February 9.

Best described as an experimental jazz band, the Necks have been mesmerising audiences for the past 30 years. Comprised of pianist Chris Abrahams, drummer Tony Buck and bass player Lloyd Swanston, the Necks have a unique sound with no two concerts being the same.

This will be their third performance in the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall.

“We’re so happy to be returning to Melbourne Recital Centre. We play venues all over the world, and the Recital Centre is one of the most beautiful and beautiful-sounding, of them all,” Lloyd Swanton said.

The trio intertwine their sounds – seemingly so in-tune with one another that a set can last for a minimum of 40 minutes. The mind boggles at how in sync these three performers are with their timing and skill.

Geoff Dyer of the New York Times said: “A performance by The Necks is all about band and audience being utterly absorbed in the process of creation.”

For jazz and experimental music fans alike, this is a performance not to be missed.

The performance beings at 7.30pm and will be two hours with a 20 minute interval.
