Berry, Yeo + Odell Quintet

past event


This newly formed co-led jazz group will make its debut at the Foundry616, showcasing a variety of newly written original music from members of the ensemble alongside arrangements of well-known compositions and standards. This night will feature the talents of Leah Berry and Justin Yeo, having worked together for several years, spanning from their early high school days through to the present time at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. It was here the pair began to play alongside the talented pianist, Thomas Odell where the trio began performing together in various ensemble and professional settings.

Recognising their musical chemistry and shared passion for jazz has led them to exchange influences and concepts to create new music informed by a wider musical sphere.

Leah Berry, Thomas Odell, and Justin Yeo will be joined by the talents of Elliott Carter on Drums and Matthew Ling on Bass, having played together numerous times.

Kevin Hunt said about Leah: “Her deep approach and attention to detail is paying well in her performances […] And makes me think of how the accompanists would enjoy working more closely with her concepts and delivery”.

Kevin Hunt also described Justin Yeo: “…produced a fine set of jazz, ranging from modern sounds… To the very finely balanced melodic playing of popular melodies”

“These young players are developing a strong musical bond, whilst playing a lot of jazz tradition… This will be a great night of music.”
