Gig Information

Three of the most exciting tenor saxophone players in Australasia — Sugg, Mackey and Manins — come together for the first time in the powerhouse group TTTenor.

For more than fifty years the tenor saxophone has been the sound of jazz. Think Sonny Rollins or John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter or Michael Brecker, Chris Potter or even a young Kenny G. So, what could be better than a jazz combo fronted by a tenor saxophone? Easy … one fronted by three!

But three-tenor line-ups in jazz are rare. That’s one reason why the jazz combo TTTenor is so special. Another is that the saxophonists of TTTenor are John Mackey, Roger Manins and Andy Sugg. Based in Canberra, Auckland and Melbourne respectively, these tenorists represent the very best of contemporary jazz in the southern hemisphere — and on stage together they make the most exciting three-tenor jazz combo performing anywhere in the world today.

These powerhouse players shine at the very thing that makes jazz so unique and special – great solo and collective improvising. Mackey, Manins and Sugg’s experience is wide — they’ve worked with a veritable who’s who of the international jazz scene — and their understanding of the language is deep. Each pays homage to the tradition while at the same time driving it forward in exhilarating ways. Each has a strong distinctive voice, and whether using it to blend smoothly together or stand out on their own, when they appear on stage together something very special happens.

When you hear TTTenor perform you understand why jazz has had such an impact all around the world and why it’s still the most exciting music to see and hear today.

Featuring:
Andy Sugg (T-sax), John Mackey (T-sax), Roger Manins (T-sax), Kevin Field (Piano), Cameron McArthur (D-Bass) and Mark Lockett (Drums)
