about

THIS WORLD is the stunning debut release from a new collaborative quartet formed by four of Australia’s most established and celebrated jazz musicians. Exceptionally recorded and produced, it features a diverse program of nine exciting new compositions created specifically for this album.

The overall mood is contemplative yet hopeful, while a singular strength of conviction is always present. Despite this album being the band's debut, the musicians have enjoyed established relationships with each other in a variety of formats for many years before coming together as a quartet. The shared history and personal connection between them all can be felt in every note.

ABOUT THE MUSICIANS:
New Zealand born pianist/composer Mike Nock (ONZM) is one of the acknowledged masters of jazz in Australasia. Based in Sydney since 1986, he previously spent 25 years in the USA, working with many of the world’s top jazz artists. He is a recipient of the Don Banks Music Award and in inductee of the Australian Jazz Bell Awards Hall of Fame. He has released a plethora of critically acclaimed albums under his own name on many international labels including his own label FWM.

Jonathan Zwartz (also originally from NZ) and Hamish Stuart form one of Australia’s great musical partnerships. For 30 years they have run the Starfish Club together in various venues along Sydney’s eastern beaches and are the first-call rhythm section for a who’s-who of the Australian music industry and international touring acts. Individually, their resumes serve as a roll-call of international stars; together their simpatico and hook-up is legendary. Zwartz' own albums (featuring Hamish, of course) regularly appear on top-seller lists and have won numerous awards including an ARIA, an AIR Award and a handful of Australian Jazz "Bell"Awards.

Melbourne saxophonist Julien Wilson has been awarded almost every major accolade in Australian jazz, including the National Jazz Award, The Freedman Fellowship for Jazz, an APRA/AMCOS Art Music Award, and a “Bell” Award for Australian Jazz Musician of the Year. Since the mid-'90s he has maintained strong relationships with many Sydney musicians and regularly performs and records there.
