A stunning discovery of Australian jazz in the 70s – and a long-overdue look at the deeper currents of that nation's overlooked scene! Aussie jazz is always pretty darn fantastic – inspired by the hippest American and European styles, but often something very much of its own – and that's definitely the case with the music here, which is part of a tradition on the scene to maybe open the music to more organic elements, sometimes in direct reference to the special natural qualities of the Australian continent – sometimes just with this sense of progression and overall vibe that's very distinct, and really beautiful. The set list is fantastic – key cuts from some of the most important artists and groups on the 70s scene.
