23 April @ The Ellington Jazz Club ·
Presented by Tim Voutas Quartet ·
TVQ’s (Tim Voutas Quartet) sound is energetic and new, with intricate melodies and rhythms that keep you guessing. The compositions can be fun and cheeky while at the same time take you on a journey through a wave of emotions. This project started in 2016 as an outlet for creativity and since then has grown to create its first album “Introducing TVQ.” TVQ draws upon influences spanning Bill Evan’s harmonic lushness, Art Blakey’s fire, Hiromi Uehara’s flare and Keith Jarrett’s emotion.
Join us to celebrate the launch of “Introducing TVQ” which is sure to be a night not to be forgotten.
Ricki Malet: Trumpet
Tim Voutas: Piano
Alistair Peel: Double Bass
Ryan Daunt: Drums
Based in Perth, Tim Voutas’s piano playing is energetic and colourful. His early classical piano playing got him into music and then luckily steered him towards Jazz. He graduated the GIJ academy big band in 2013 and WAAPA in 2017. From there he has been performing around Perth in his own groups “TVQ” (Tim Voutas Quartet) and “The Island Trio.” He is also a member of the Perth Cabaret Collective.
