We are pleased and proud to announce that the Andrew Dickeson Quintet will be touring regional NSW in September 2013 – with the support of Arts NSW and SIMA.
Dickeson’s group is a true all-star aggregation – with several winners of the prestigious National Jazz Award and Bell Jazz Awards.
The group has an identifiable sound – strong swinging grooves and interesting arrangements. Their debut CD “Weaver Of Dreams” received rave reviews from the Australian and overseas press.
“Andrew Dickeson has elevated himself beyond his universally accepted perch as a stellar sideman and is now staking his claim as a distinguished bandleader.” – George Coleman Jr, NYC.
” A quintet of great depth and innate feel for what real swing is all about – the groove.” – Brent Black, Digital Jazz Review.
“Dickeson weaves his dreams with flair and imagination turning this first record into a delight and the beacon for more.” – Jerry D’Souza, All About Jazz.
“Few groups making their recording debut have excited me as much as this quintet led by Andrew Dickeson, whose drumming is a byword for taste, class and swing.” – Kevin Jones, ABC Limelight.
Dickeson talks about his group:
“As my playing evolved over many years as a sideman, a role I still love and enjoy, I knew that it was time to make a musical statement of my own and to present music with my own fingerprint on it. I could hear this band in my mind long before it was formed, and I felt that it would be something special.
