LIVEattheGALLERY – Gary Daley & James Greening

Sun 14 March at 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

 “These musicians held the audience spellbound. It was a full house – and it was an enthusiastic house. From the first number an extraordinary rapport between musicians and audience was palpable, a rapport that survived the break and could be felt at the end. The music was by turns intimate, charming and dramatic”. – Peter Rechniewski , Foundry 616

Highly respected musicians, James Greening, trombone and pocket trumpet & Gary Daley, pianist and accordionist, have joined forces to bring an amalgam of original compositions, classical, jazz and improv.
After decades as sought after sidemen in projects like ‘The Catholics’, as well as leading their own projects, these two renowned musicians have discovered a deep joy in making music together. Both Daley and Greening relish the freedom, intimacy and transparency of the duo which is perhaps one of the most exposed types of performance. Their musical dialogue is about unmasking, connection and freedom.
Greening’s performing and recording credits put him in the company of some Australia’s all time greatest contemporary musicians.
“Greening’s trombone has the delicious plumpness of a ripe mango. The Sad bits and the funny bits become jumbled, and there can be no higher praise.” – John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald.
Daley’s playing has been described as “exquisite”, John Shand SMH, and his composition for large ensemble, Sanctuary, drew the following response……
“music such as this can knock the wind out of my diaphragm, by simply reminding me how far the word falls short of the music”, John Hardaker
