FELUCCA

“Felucca’s debut CD demonstrates that the future of jazz in Australia is in good hands” – Simon Barker

Felucca is a collective trio based in Sydney, Australia, formed in 2010. While all members are jazz trained, completing the Jazz Studies Course at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, their interest in musics such as rock and free improvisation have permeated both their original compositions and their live performances of this material. Felucca strives for originality, spontaneity, groove and beauty in their music, constantly trying to blend the dark with the ethereal, the dense with the sparse, displaying the inquisitive energy and subversive ethos of its members. The ensemble’s treatment of melodic material is both supple and concise with a distinctive ‘stretching’ quality to it.

Their debut album, “Pierrot”, is due for release 25th March on Jazzgroove Records
