Nick Abbey // 'PHANTOMS' Album Launch!

A fixture of the Perth jazz scene and well known for his contribution to the striking original music of TRISK and Abbey|Foster|Falle, renowned Perth bassist Nick Abbey tonight launches his debut album ‘PHANTOMS’. This highly-anticipated release reunites the 2015 National Jazz Awards Finalist and three-time WAM Jazz Song of the Year Winner with the incredible talents of his long-time collaborators and close friends Chris Foster (piano) and Daniel Susnjar (drums). ‘PHANTOMS’ is the exciting culmination of an intense period of composition, taking advantage of the trio’s unique musical kinship and trademark blend of dynamic rhythmic interplay, lush harmonies, and emotive melodies to forge a stellar and impassioned new album. This will be an incredible night of music and is absolutely not-to-be-missed!

 

Nick would like extend a heartfelt thanks to the WA Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries ‘Culture and the Arts’ grants program and all of the individuals who contributed through the Pozible crowdfunding campaign for their enormous support, without which this project could not have happened.
