Kinju Quintet

$15 presale, $20 on the door

Kinju Quintet is a Melbourne based group that plays original music - jazz, blues, funk, soul and the odd bit of world music with the aim of achieving an Australian sound. Their super-hip, hard-bop original tunesare influenced by the cool sounds of the Blue Note label and players like Miles, Monk, Mingus and the Messengers but essentially the aim is a joyous, soulful, laid-back ‘blowout’.

The Kinju Quintet lineup is Lily Sutton – trombone, Chelsea Allen – drums, Phil Reichman – saxophones, Sam Izzo – keyboard, Tony King – double bass.
