Event Details

The Kel Timmons / Clint Allen Quintet brings together two of Brisbaneā€™s most prolific drivers of musical life. Kel Timmons Ā is an exceptional jazz singer with a trademark voice reminiscent of the Jazz and Soul greats of the 50s and 60s.

Renowned trumpeter Clint Allen is a prominent recording and performing artist, who was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to travel to Europe to work with Marcus Stockhausen, Ruud Breuls and Scott Wendholt. Ā  He also recorded (in Osnabruck, Germany) a solo modern jazz album featuring the Zapp4 String Quartet and jazz pianist Martin Fondse. Ā  Ā He is the musical director of the UQ Big Band (which recently toured to the USA and worked with Randy Brecker, Bob Mintzer and Gordon Goodwin) and can be regularly seen around Brisbane playing with everyone from brass powerhouse BULLHORN to blues outfit Dezzie D & The Stingrayz.

Backed by a stellar rhythm section featuring Brett Fowler on piano, Andrew Shaw on bass and Dave Cotgreave on drums, the Kel Timmons / Clint Allen QuintetĀ breathes new life into jazz standards of the 50s and 60s, mixing old and new forms and exploring the boundaries of modern jazz.
