Recording: The Brodie West Quintet

Artist: The Brodie West Quintet

Song: Tumbling In + Dirty Vampires*

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), February 11, 2018.

The Brodie West Quintet - Tumbling In

The Brodie West Quintet - Dirty Vampires

On the cusp of heading into the studio to record the compositions he's been developing for this quintet, Brodie West and co. (which would be Tania Gill on piano and Josh Cole on double bass plus double percussionists Evan Cartwright and Nick Fraser) were in that sweet spot of being right in sync with each other but less than mechanically familiar with the material, leaving lots of room for moments of on-the-fly rearrangement and creative exploration.

* Thanks to Brodie for confirming the titles to these.


  1. Joe. Thanks for posting these recordings. It was an exciting night! That other piece is called Tumbling In. Can't wait to share the studio record. Due out in September. B
