MJC Presents: Nat Bartsch’s Lullaby Project and Melville/Frater/Macdonald Live at The Jazzlab

Concert or Performance

10 Mar 2019

In 2017 Nat Bartsch released a solo album of lullabies on ABC Classics that blends post-classicism and improvisation. Influenced by music therapy research, the project is designed to send babies to sleep – but also, more importantly, to be enjoyed by their parents.

Bartsch now returns her work to a jazz context, performing the pieces with various artists with a focus on the musical parameters of simplicity, repetition and lyricism. For this concert she will be joined by Robbie Melville (guitar and loops), Zoe Fräter (electric bass) and Dan Macdonald (drums).

Robbie Melville (guitar), Zoe Fräter (bass) and Dan Macdonald (drums) usually perform together as the rhythm section of Melville’s quintet cleverhorse. As a trio, they explore the cleverhorse catalogue, which stretches back over a 15 year period, placing as much emphasis on group conversation and sonic texture as they do on melodic and rhythmic development. The result is a body of work that contrasts the melodic and cinematic with the frenetic and quirky.
