ALEX STUART: 'Around' Album Launch
Creating new worlds
On 11 October 2010, virtuoso Australian guitarist Alex Stuart launches his new album ‘Around’ at Paris's iconic jazz club the Sunset.
Drawing on the musical heritage of four continents, ‘Around’ combines Stuart’s admiration for jazz luminaries like Kurt Rosenwinkel and Bill Frisell with the sounds of Africa, India and Australia.
The album was also heavily inspired by Stuart’s 2009 residency in Kolkata, under the guidance of master sarodist Anindya Banerjee.
But after months of composition in Paris and some serious studio time, Stuart has synthesised world music, jazz and even rock influences into a music that is more than just the sum of its parts.
Join Stuart and his band as he launches ‘Around’, an album that will soon take him to India for some of the country’s biggest jazz festivals.
