Perth Jazz Society Double Album Launch: MEJADRA and MARC OSBORNE

This event has passed!

The Perth Jazz Society are proud to host a double album launch event, featuring debut albums by Imogen Thomson and Austin Salisbury (MEJADRA) and Marc Osborne (People). In 2018, PJS sponsored the recording projects of these up and coming musicians.

Through our relationship with recording studio Procopy, PJS provided free studio hire, engineering time and access to a grant writer to 2 deserving artists - Imogen Thomson and Austin Salisbury (MEJADRA) and Marc Osborne. Imogen Thomson/Austin Salisbury - MEJADRA Imogen Thomson/Austin Salisbury – This newly formed group combines the improvisation and harmonic intricacies of Jazz with the primal groove and percussive sounds of Afro-Cuban music.

Leading the band is Imogen Thomson on percussion and Austin Salisbury on piano. Inspired by the likes of Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Lionel Loueke and Pedrito Martinez, they have enlisted the help of Alex Reid (drums), Jeremy Thomson (guitar) and Alistair Peel (double bass). The group released their debut album “Mejadra” in November of 2018 at the Perth International Jazz Festival.

MARC OSBORNE - People Marc Osborne has been on the jazz scene for over 10 years, playing as a sideman and musical director in many of Western Australia’s most acclaimed ensembles. His debut album ‘People’ is his first official documentation as a band leader with his quartet, featuring the formidable young talents of Jacob Mitchell (guitar), Alistair Peel (bass) and Daniel Harrison (drums). With the birth of his first son this year, Marc has written a collection of musical reflections on the people that have shaped him over the course of the last 10 years and continue to influence and inspire him, personally and musically.
