Jake Mason Trio
Friday 3 December, 7:00PM
The Toff in Town
Taking cues from the golden era of Hammond organ artists such as Jimmy Smith, Brother Jack McDuff and Dr. Lonnie Smith, as well as music from today’s melting pot, Jake Mason Trio weave their way through familiar sounds with their own modern twist and blazing vigour.
Bridging jazz, soul and pop, multi-instrumentalist and prolific songwriter Mason has released over a dozen albums, gained platinum sales in Australia and established his own label and studio Soul Messin’ Records. An accomplished live performer, he has worked with artists such as Richard Clapton, Kylie Auldist, Clare Bowditch and Hugh Jackman, and co-written with Kate Ceberano, Eric McCusker and Tania Doko to name a few.
“I love the place where Jazz and Soul meet. It has a simplicity that is so warm and welcoming combined with a complexity that is exciting and makes you move” – Jake Mason
