Danny Moss Jnr Trio featuring Mark Turner
Danny Moss Jnr’s propulsive, swinging bass playing has earned him a considerable reputation both at home and overseas. The quartet he has co-led for a decade out of London ‘The Danny Moss Jnr/Dave Chamberlain Quartet’ is a favourite on the European festival circuit and regularly does capacity business at Ronnie Scott’s famous jazz club in London. Mark Turner captivates audiences with his unique blend of blues, folk, soul and groove. He is a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter with an irresistible warmth and passion for music. His energy onstage carries the audience through his romantic ballads to his gritty high-energy blues; a performer who defies definition. Adrian Galante is an Australian jazz clarinetist and pianist. His precocious talent excites and delights audiences wherever he performs, playing both instruments with a depth of knowledge and feeling that very few attain. A recent graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing arts, Adrian was awarded the Channel 7 award for Jazz for highest marked graduating student and best Honours graduation recital. Bronton Ainsworth is highly talented and a very experienced percussionist. His professionalism is second to none and his touch, sound, time, and feel at the drums adds class to every group he plays in. Mark Turner vocals/guitar/sax, Adrian Galante clarinet/piano, Danny Moss Jnr bass. Bronton Ainsworth drums.
