The Jonathan Zwartz Quintet features Phil Slater (trumpet), Carl Dewhurst (guitar),Matt McMahon (piano), Jonathan Zwartz (bass) and Hamish Stuart (drums). This all-star Sydney group will play original compositions from Jonathan’s several recent award-winning albums, including, Animarum Winner of the Aria Award for Best Jazz Album 2018.
“Zwartz’s latest album is a thing of beauty. Soul is a word that, even more than jazz, defines this album. Animarum is a Latin word and translates as ‘the care of souls’. I hear a lot of soul on this album, and perhaps an even subtler thing: souls caring for each other.” – Radio NZ, Feb 2018
