SEAN COFFIN – TENOR SAXOPHONE
CHRIS TARR – DRUMS
TOM O’HALLARON (ATM)– PIANO
NICK ABBEY – DOUBLE BASS
Sean Coffin has been a stalwart in the Sydney jazz and music scene for over twenty years performing mostly with his original groups the Coffin Brothers (20 years), Medicinal Purpose, SCQUINT, Eff Sharp and The Theory of Nostrils, Sean Coffin Trio and being an influential teacher.
Sean’s ten years living and studying in Boston and New York with George Garzone, Joe Viola and Bob Mintzer…….set the considerable foundation for his dynamically powerful improvising and compositional style which will be on display in Perth for the first time.
This will be a swingin and groovin ride through the original compositions of Sean presented along with this fantastic Perth trio (O’Hallaron, Tarr and Abbey).
He is one of our most dedicated saxophonist/composers and educators and has several groups that are key ensembles in the Sydney jazz scene. His formidable musicianship is a great addition to the Australian musical landscape
