Hammerhead (Album Launch)

Hammerhead (Album Launch)

Wednesday 13 August:  Hard Swinging sextet Hammerhead return to the club after an absence of over a year to feature tunes from their highly anticipate debut CD ‘Mozaic’ .

Evoking the sounds from the classic ‘Blue Note’ period from the mid sixties, Hammerhead draws inspiration from notable composers of that period including Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver and Cedar Walton.

Formed through the common musical aspirations of internationally acclaimed tenor saxophonist Jason Bruer and hard swinging drummer Duncan Archibald, Ray Cassar trumpet, Andrew Robertson alto, Matt Gruebner  bass, and Tim Bruer on piano round out the Sextet.

Hammerhead play a mix of original tunes inspired by the compositions of the 50’s and 60’s hard bop movement as well as fantastic arrangements of some of the great music from that period. 

The originals, whilst retaining the essential elements of the ‘Hard Bop’ movement, reflect a more contemporary and eclectic approach incorporating swing, latin and funk styling.

Together with great arrangements of classic bop tunes, Hammerhead play with a spirit and energy that has won the Sextet rave reviews
