Geoff's Reviews Updated November,2006

Here's what some people have said about Aspects Of Power: Aspects Of Power: Geoff's first CD as a band leader and featured performer, was released in November 1999 on the La Brava label, and was a 2000 ARIA awards nominee in the Best Jazz Album category.

Geoff Power, tuba player in the wonderful Cafe Society Orchestra among other aggregations steps into the spotlight with his cornet and trombone also under his arm, providing a fine set of classic jazz tunes in a piano-less sextet. And what a sextet...JOHN SHAND - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
