Set to take his show on the road this June is Adelaide’s multi award winning, composer and bassist Ross McHenry.
His new project, The Ross McHenry Trio features NZ drumming powerhouse Myele Manzanza and ex Adelaide, now New York based, pianist Matthew Sheens.
The trio will perform at The Jade Monkey on June 3 before travelling to Melbourne to support the Robert Glasper Trio (USA) at the Melbourne Recital Centre, as a part of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
Following further Melbourne dates, the group will head to Ginger Studios in Melbourne to finish their debut recording, due late 2016.
The short tour is one of many exciting projects on the horizon for Ross this year; in July, he will release the follow up to his 2013 album Distant Oceans titled Child of Somebody.
The much anticipated Child of Somebody was recorded in 2015 in New York with many great artists, including Marcus Strickland, Mark de Clive Lowe, Tivon Pennicott, Duane Eubanks and Corey King.
