Shaun Rammers Shaun Rammers

Shaun Rammers is a saxophonist and composer who is a part of the jazz and improvised music scene in Australia. Shaun released two albums as a leader and co- leader in 2017. He relocated to Melbourne in 2014 after graduating from the WA Academy of Performing Arts with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance with Honours.

Shaun had the privilege of studying with Jamie Oehlers and Tom O’Halloran during his four years at WAAPA, along with many special guest teachers along the way. These included Dave Ades, Ben Wendel, George Garzone and Steve Magnusson. He has also been involved in numerous workshopping events, with highlights including the School for Improvisation at New York University run by Ralph Alessi in 2011 and the Creative Music Intensive run by the Australian Art Orchestra in 2015.

“LIVE” is the first album released by the Shaun Rammers Quintet and features seven original compositions. Recorded live at Lebowskis, it is a wonderful documentation of the calibre of performance this group can produce. Featuring James Macaulay on trombone, Joe O’Connor on piano, Hiroki Hoshino on bass, James McLean on drums and Shaun Rammers on saxophone. The album was released to a full house at Melbourne’s Uptown Jazz Café in July 2017

“At The Brunswick Green” is an album released by Question Time, a band co- led by Shaun and trumpeter Andrew Gioia, featuring music composed by both leaders. The band weaves through melodic and rhythmic ideas, creating interesting, high-energy music, whilst still being quirky and fun. In 2017 Question Time toured to Perth to perform at Tura New Music’s festival “Audible Edge” then later in the year travelled to Sydney and Canberra to promote their album.

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.
