James Lockwood Trio's new Melbourne show is a deep dive into Jazz & Bebop

Stars Over Marrakech’ is an homage to the music and legacy of three pivotal figures in the Jazz and Bebop traditions, pianists Elmo Hope, Bud Powell, and Barry Harris.

At 7:00pm Friday 21st April, for one night only at Northcote’s Open Studio, upright bassist James Lockwood will be presenting a unique selection of seminal works within the Bebop piano tradition.

Joined by sidemen Luke Drohan (piano) and Paul Whitwood (drumkit), Lockwood emphasises the interplay of melody and counter-melody to explore the unique, classically-informed styles of these three master pianists, in addition to the vast improvisational potential left by their musical legacies.
