TAKE NOTE 2021 COMMISSION
A bold new work from a jazz leader on the rise.

Trombonist, composer and leader of MIJF’s Take Note program Ellie Lamb premieres their ambitious commission, exploring themes of identity and the experience of living between genres and genders.

Ellie’s suite draws on a range of musical styles including minimalism, folk and post-rock – all interwoven with lush orchestrations.

Leading the listener through a narrative of realisation; the work will move through moments of tension and dysphoria, calm contemplation, and euphoria.

In an 8-piece ensemble featuring some of Melbourne’s most exciting improvisers, this premiere will showcase the immense talent of Australia’s next generation of jazz artists.
