Former Canberran, ANU School of Music graduate and now Paris-based jazz guitarist Daniel Hunter will be launching his second album tonight at the ANU School of Music. Having studied under the man himself, it is a pleasure to see him returning home to the capital to launch his second album, Refuge.
Following on from his debut album in 2013, aptly named The Twentieth, alluding to his surrounds in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, Refuge‘s themes span the plight of refugees, the search for shelter, the emotional aftermath of terrorist attack, the snowfalls of European winter, and the French Alps.
To be released via French label Jazz Family, Refuge is the result of a week-long residency at la Maison des Artistes – a recording studio/jazz club in the French Alps.
Daniel Hunter will be performing with his quartet including American saxophonist and long-time collaborator Warren Walker. The Daniel Hunter Quartet has performed throughout France, Germany, Switzerland and Australia.
The concert is scheduled to commence at 7:45pm in the Big Band Room of the Peter Karmel Building at the ANU School of Music. Tickets are available at: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/daniel-hunter-quartet-tickets-32839638242
