Album Description

The Monash Sessions is an ongoing series of albums curated by jazz staff at the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music, Monash University, featuring acclaimed artists alongside Monash School of Music staff and students. Artists in this series of releases include Hermeto Pascoal, Andrea Keller, Kenny Werner, Sandy Evans, Ralph Alessi, Judy Bailey, Ben Monder, Kate Ceberano, Mike Nock, Vince Jones, and Tony Gould. Recorded in 2018, this project features internationally distinguished Australian jazz musician, bassist and composer Linda May Han Oh. It also features Monash University jazz students who had the privilege and rare opportunity to rehearse, perform and record Ohs’ compositions with her. This unique student learning experience is a key pedagogical approach within the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music, with established artists mentoring the next generation of jazz musicians. Linda has performed with the musicians such as Joe Lovano, Steve Wilson, Vijay Iyer, Dave Douglas, Kenny Barron, Geri Allen, Fabian Almazan, and Terri Lyne Carrington. She is currently the bassist with guitarist Pat Metheny. "These original pieces are from two of my previous albums - 'Walk Against Wind' and 'Sun Pictures'. On this recording, I rearranged these pieces for these slightly larger configurations and in a short amount of time, these up-and-coming musicians at Monash University learned and executed a considerable amount of challenging music, really delivering their best and doing a fantastic job. They offered their own distinct musical interpretations that I found touching and honest, giving myself a different perspective of these tunes. This album is the culmination of a handful of rehearsals and a night performing this music at the Jazzlab Jazz Club in Brunswick, and I'm honoured to have collaborated with them on this." - Linda May Han Oh.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
