In this episode I’m talking toTroy Roberts, a great saxophonist and composer from New York. Originally from Perth, Troy has been playing with everyone and everywhere! He is currently back in Australia with family during the COVID times.
What you can also hear is Daniel Susnjar’s easy dexterity and his knack of playing right inside the music.
The most dynamic hub of the festival was to be found at the The Jazz Quarter in Brookfield Place. Three stages set amidst a thriving small bar scene encompassing several styles from some of our favourite locals.
This second Perth International Jazz Festival (PIJF) commencing Friday 9th and concluding Sunday 11th May seemed to be an unqualified success. If key indicators included engaging the populace, developing on last year’s inaugural festival, presenting a variety of styles and venues, presenting music more challenging and innovative than may be heard in Perth on a weekly basis then all boxes could be ticked.
