“I first heard Mostyn Cole way back in 2004 I think; in Christchurch and on electric. I still remember the feeling, wondering what he was going to do next, and of course his sound- so warm, so creative, and so great to play with. Next I played a gig with Reuben at the Lido. Energy, creativity and spirit and I knew I had my trio. We rehearsed a lot in 2005. We recorded for the ABC Jazz, we played Wangaratta Jazz festival. Later, we released TRIO on Rattle- an album I still am really proud of. Its true, we have not played together as this trio in a long while, but we have continued playing a lot in different bands over the years. I have played on a tonne of Reuben’s projects, and Mostyn is in my band GRG67, so we are COOL. So, expect some joy, some empathy, some energy and humour and spirit. I am really excited about this gig and hope you can come. ”
