Recording: Bellwether4

Artist: Bellwether4

Song: Suite [in two parts] [composer: Anthony Argatoff]*

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), April 18, 2018.

Bellwether4 - Suite, Part 1

Bellwether4 - Suite, Part 2

Having all the members of Bellwether4 in town at the same time meant it was necessary to grab a slot at The Tranzac, even if it was an unusual extra-early one. That gave Emily Denison (trumpet), Anthony Argatoff (alto saxophone), Victor Vrankulj (double bass), and Andrew Miller (percussion) a chance to take a spin through their book with pieces coming from all members (as well as one by past honoured guest Joe Sorbara). Moving from amped-up études to groovy bumblebee flights it was rewarding to get an increasingly-rare chance to see the band in action as they slide away to other cities and other scenarios.

* This was called out with just the generic title "Suite". It may have a more complete name — please leave a comment if you know it!
