Trumpeter Warwick Alder is known for working with many illustrious artists over his long career, and he is notably a long-term associate of legendary saxophonist Bernie McGann's highly praised quartet. His beautiful sound and style, his feeling for the characteristics of the instrument and his effortless flow of ideas in any idiom have made him the trumpeter of choice for many artists and many styles, from the traditional to the avant-garde.
Warwick was a founding member of James Morrison’s first band, Morrison Bros. Big Band as well as Australia’s leading modern jazz ensemble, Ten Part Invention. He has performed with such international stars as Cleo Laine, Joe Williams, Branford Marsalis, Eartha Kitt and many others.
