Pianist/composer Tom O’Halloran won the Limelight Magazine Award for Best Jazz Achievement in 2009. Daniel Susnjar (drums), based at Miami University, returns to Perth and reunities with Pete Jeavons (bass) and O’Halloran. This well-known outfit ranges from modern, swinging jazz through to ambient, slow landscapes, from Latin influenced compositions to intimate ballads. Their second album, We Happy Few (Jazzgroove) explores darker textures, improvisatory interaction with electronics and continues the catalogue of unique compositions that is making this group identifiable - a great concert not to be missed!! “Gifted with big ears, formidable technique and a free-wheeling conception, pianist/composer Tom O’Halloran should be on the must-hear list of anyone interested in hearing the best of what current Australian jazz has to offer.” - Mike Nock. “(Tom O’Halloran is)…retaining his own identity via his original compositions...there is a youthful buoyancy weaving intricate colours and textural contrasts.” – Peter Wockner, ABC’s Limelight magazine. “… pianist, composer and conductor Tom O’Halloran led his trio in a sparkling set full of rhythmic teamwork, subtle or sudden gear shifts, zipping pace and dancing lyricism that has characterized the jazz piano trio tradition.” John Shand.
