Scott Tinkler

Australian trumpeter Scott Tinkler has been performing professionally since 1983 and is well known for his many brilliant incarnations as an ensemble player, recording and touring with such groups as the Australian Art Orchestra, Mark Simmonds Freeboppers, The Paul Grabowsky Quintet and The Dale Barlow Quintet as well as with international artists such as Mark Helias, Joe Lovano, Betty Carter, Branford Marsalis, Han Bennink, Billy Harper, Arthur Blythe, Cindy Blackman, Guru Kaaraikkudi Mani etc.

It was, however, his debut as a bandleader in 1993 that really brought him to the attention of both the media and the public. His Melbourne based Scott Tinkler Quartet with Grabowsky, Rex and Lambie received rave reviews for live performances and the quartet’s two CD’s The Back Of My Head and Hop To The Cow both received ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Awards) nominations.

”Tinkler has the best tone, technique, articulation and inventiveness of any Australian trumpeter I've ever heard... For sheer bursting excitement there can be few anywhere to match him.” --John Clare (Sydney Morning Herald)

“Above all there was the trumpet of Tinkler. He ripped at the harmonic fabric of Angel with tiny, impossibly poignant cries and on Circle of Trust alternated blasts of white light with great smears of sonic emotion.

This was Australian jazz at its best.” --John Shand (Sydney Morning Herald) May 26, 2004
