Originally from Brisbane, Lachlan McKenzie relocated to Sydney at the beginning of 2021. Since this move, Lachlan has had the opportunity to study with exceptional musicians/educators including Phil Slater, Will Vinson, Matt McMahon, and perform with leading musicians/groups such as John Harkins, James Morrison, Andrew Robertson Big Band, John Morrison’s Swing City Big Band, Hammerhead, Andrew Dickeson, Aaron Blakey, ANJO Youth Big Band, and Michael Griffin.
Lachlan’s trumpet playing is influenced by a wide range of artists and music across the jazz lineage including Kenny Dorham, Clifford Brown, Kenny Wheeler, and Roy Hargrove among others.
Along with Lachlan on trumpet, the quintet features the talents of tenor-saxophonist Lachy Hamilton, pianist Wilbur Whitta, bassist Jacob Graham, and drummer George Greenhill. The group will perform a mixture of Lachlan’s original music and various other repertoire from the pen of artists such as Cedar Walton and Duke Pearson.
