In association with The Cavell Leitch Jazz and Blues Festival 2018, Orange Studios brings you two nights of intimate shows with one of Australasia’s most stunning and unique modern jazz trios. The Berardi/Foran/Karlen is the trifecta Kristin Berardi (vocals), Sean Foran (piano) and Rafael Karlen (tenor saxophone), known for their clear personal aesthetic and artistic voice.
Highly awarded nationally and internationally as performers and composers, their combined experience is formidable with performances around the world at the Montreux, Tokyo, and Bremen Jazz Festivals, and tours to the US, UK, Europe, Japan, China, Korea and more. The music of this group is unlike anything they have each produced before and draws on sounds from modern jazz, European folk music and classical music. You may hear influences from jazz masters such as Kenny Wheeler, Bobo Stenson and Norma Winstone alongside the sounds of Debussy and Joni Mitchell. Intensely intimate, textural and emotional, the music of Berardi/Foran/Karlen draws you close, at times a whisper, the lush piano harmonies merging with Berardi’s sublime vocal lines and Karlen’s engaging melodic interplay. The intuitiveness of the improvising within the trio is stunning, with an interactive group sound featuring in the music.
