Sydney musicians tonight pay homage to the legendary, controversial and iconic BEBOP SESSIONS, with Kevin Camrass on sax and Matthew Collins on trumpet accompanied by a rhythm section of Casper Tromp on piano, Hamish Gullick on bass and Philip Lombardo on drums.

Expect many of the most loved and studied compositions of Billies Bounce, Blue Monk, Bouncing with Bud, Salt Peanuts and more…
