The ishs/Allen Project (Album Launch)
Wednesday 04th March 2015
Often sparse and understated, always elegant, this debut album for The ishs/Allen Project delivers wonderfully complementary pieces, each painted in warm harmonic brushstrokes, framed in thoughtful arrangements, and recorded to perfection.
— Peter Neville (Head of Percussion and New Music Studio, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music)
Experience The ishs/Allen Project at the very fine Paris Cat Jazz Club in the heart of Melbourne CBD. The ishs/Allen Project plays original, contemporary jazz tunes. Spearheaded by pianist ade ishs and drummer Chelsea Allen, this new Melbourne-based band gives listeners moments to indulge in immersive harmonies, lyrical melodies, and dexterous rhythms.
After having been playing together for more than two years across states and in various festivals, including the most recent Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues, the band is launching their eponymous debut album tonight. As part of their album promo tour, this concert will showcase original compositions by the bandleaders, including the music in the album.
