Pure Jazz Sessions – Paul Grabowsky Solo


It is difficult to describe Paul Grabowsky’s career easily. He has been a director of some of Australia’s most prominent arts festivals, the composer of nearly thirty feature film scores, and several works of music theatre, the founder and leader for nineteen years of the Australian Art Orchestra, an executive at the ABC, and is currently at Monash University, where he heads up the Academy of Performing Arts. Whether as a composer, teacher, television personality, mentor, or advocate for the role of artistic expression as a defining attribute of contemporary life, for him this is all informed by his work as a pianist, and composer, particularly in the field of jazz, where according to him, ‘the piano never lies’.

His musical journeys have resulted in collaborations with musicians from many countries, not least with the First Nations peoples of Australia, and those journeys continue. Among

his many awards are seven ARIA Awards, the Melbourne Prize for Music, and an H.C. Coombs Fellowship. In recognition of his achievements, he was made an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2014.

Grabowsky’s landmark album Solo features all the hallmarks that have made him one of the world’s foremost jazz instrumentalists and composers.  Based on the album, this concert is contemporary jazz for the connoisseur: rich, engaging, and full of allusion and wit.
