Perth Jazz Society Double Album Launch: Joshua Cusack Dectet & Helium

This event has passed!

The Perth Jazz Society are proud to host a double album launch event, featuring debut albums by Joshua Cusack Dectet and Helium.

PJS has been supporting original jazz artists in Perth for over 40 years. Through their relationship with recording studio Procopy, PJS provides free studio hire and engineering time to 2 deserving artists each year, enabling them to record an album of original music. This year’s artists present a night of groundbreaking original jazz, celebrating the launch of their albums, and the end of another successful year for PJS.

JOSHUA CUSACK DECTET 

Joshua Cusack is a budding composer and bassist from Perth Western Australia. His large ensemble music features aspects of jazz, free music and electronics. In 2018 Joshua wrote a suite of music to celebrate his time spent at WAAPA, “the graduation suite”. This music among others will be performed by Joshua’s exciting ten piece band. His music is pensive, exciting, experimental and not to be missed.

HELIUM

Formed in 2014, Helium is a dynamic instrumental trio featuring standout Western Australian musicians Harry Mitchell on organ, Jeremy Thomson on guitar and Daniel Susnjar on drums. Members of Helium have shared the stage with music legends including Chick Corea, Charlie Watts, Terence Blanchard, Bobby McFerrin and Dr G Yunuingu, and have been honoured with multiple Australian Jazz Bell Awards in 2015, 2017 and 2018, along with APRA Art Music Awards in 2017 and 2019 and WAM Awards from 2015-2018.
