Spike Mason Spike Mason

“Spike Mason is a fantastically good sax player. The respect he has earnt from all corners of the music industry: young and old, jazz pop classical and folk, is testament to his ability to listen, reflect, and respond musically in any situation. The strength of his performance and the sublimity of his improvisations are always evident. Few musicians are so reliably able to find the sweet spot in any venue, the heart in any ensemble, the ear of any audience.” I’ve been playing music all my life, and I love it because it makes me feel alive. I compose and play music every day, and realise it’s what I'll do for the rest of my life. I’ve played music with many musicians over the past 30 years, in Australia, the USA, the UK, Canada, Ireland, Greece, Singapore, Italy, The Czech Republic, Holland, Turkey, and New Zealand. I've performed at countless festivals and clubs, from stadium stages to people's kitchens, with both famous and unknown musicians, in front of very large and very small crowds. I’ve also been a session musician for many diverse artists, helping them make their music a reality, by recording, composing, arranging, and producing on over 150 albums, including soundtracks for film and television. I’ve spent many years studying too and have been awarded a Masters of Music In Jazz Performance, a Bachelor of Music, a Bachelor of Education, and an Associate Diploma of Jazz Studies

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.
