Saxophonist Sam Gill returns to Acoustic Ritual with his quintet Scattered! Drawing on the worlds of jazz, chamber music & free improvisation, the band features some of Sydney’s most accomplished improvisers: Paul Cutlan on clarinets, Luke Sweeting on accordion, Yutaro Okuda on guitar, and Jacques Emery on bass. They’ll be playing some exciting new music written during the COVID-19 lockdown alongside music from the group’s 2020 debut album ‘Perspectival’.

Come down for a night of lush, melodically-driven improvised music!

“Gill’s conception for his Scattered quintet slices through time and space to combine the freedom and complexity of now with an almost urbane salon aesthetic that could be a century old… the music, laden with a muted sense of disquiet, sounds as fresh as tomorrow.” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

“Perspectival [is] a subdued chamber jazz recording that merges rigor with indeterminacy, performed with consummate skill… [and a] palpable air of mystery that pervades the recording.” – Troy Dostert, allaboutjazz.com
