Coming together for this special recording are two of Melbourne’s most exciting young horn players Trumpeter Audrey Powne and Saxophonist Flora Carbo.
At the age of only 19, Flora Carbo can already boast an illustrious career in the Australian Jazz scene. In 2016 she was selected as one of the 10 finalists in the National Jazz Awards held at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival and was also among the finalists in the James Morrison Scholarship Competition at the Generations in Jazz Festival in Mount Gambier, which she won in 2017. She is currently in her second year studying a Bachelor of Music at the James Morrison Academy of Music, Mount Gambier.
Trumpeter Audrey Powne will be known to Melbourne audiences for fronting The Do Yo Thangs, and stalwart funk outfit Au Dré and as the resident Trumpeter for the likes of The Bedroom Philosopher and The Tiger and me. Her command of the Trumpet has seen her recognised and perform alongside many of the most prominent names on the instrument including Terence Blanchard and Leroy Jones. In 2011 at the age of just 21 Audrey was awarded the James Morrison Jazz Prize as part of the Melbourne International Festival of Brass.
The pair will be playing original music written specifically for this project and each other. Audrey and Flora will be accompanied by the stalwart rhythm section of Joseph O’Connor on Piano, Marty Holoubek
