One of Australia’s finest jazz musicians, internationally acclaimed jazz pianist Mark Fitzgibbon joins us this weekend.
Having lived in London in the 1980s performing at Ronnie Scotts and throughout Europe, Mark has accompanied many international jazz stars such as Scott Hamilton, Lee Konitz, John Stubblefield, Curtis Lundy, Claire Martin, Mark Murphy and George Coleman Jr.
Winner of the National Jazz Awards at the Wangarratta Jazz Festival, he has worked and recorded with with many of Australia’s finest jazz performers including Dale Barlow, Bernie McGann, Vince Jones, Christine McNulty, Jamie Oehlers, Scott Tinkler, Ian Chaplin and Wilbur Wilde, as well as his own trios and quartets.
The quintessential bebop jazz pianist, his swinging touch and virtuosity is the reason why he’s one of the most in demand players in Australia.
“Mark Fitzgibbon is one of the most underrated talents in the country. Always musically tasteful, a consistently sympathetic accompanist, a repository of a vast repertoire and an impeccable touch, he can produce blistering solos and lift the music to another level.” – Adrian Jackson the AGE
