In celebration of International Women’s Day, Lisa Young Quartet, launches it’s official music video release, featuring the single Tha Thin Tha" (Ta Din Ta) from their new album The Eternal Pulse.
Filmed on a winter’s day at Ferdydurke in Melbourne, director Tabata Piccinelli’s vision was to weave the creation of the Eternal Pulse album artwork by artist Elizabeth Vercoe, with the vibrant imagery and the intense rhythmic language of the music. Piccinelli allows the rhythms to set the pace in the editing suite, resulting in an art-filled vision of this fine Australian ensemble.
Launched specifically on International Women’s as a celebration of the journey shared with director Tabata Piccinelli, and producer Kellie Jayne Chambers, the video features the intuitive musicality of vocalist Lisa Young, Stephen Magnusson on guitar, Ben Robertson on double bass and Dave Beck on drums.
Tha Thin Tha is composed by Lisa Young, Ben Robertson and Guru Kaaraikudi Mani and performed and improvised by Lisa Young Quartet.
My God! Lisa, You have set a very new trend. The most complicated mathematical south Indian Konakkol (spoken rhythmic patterns) can be performed, composed and joyfully. The entire team vibrating with equal energy, brilliance and joy. Congratulations all of you." —Vaidyanathan Suresh (Ghatam Suresh, Chennai)
Other worldly, totally engaging... her art is an awesome rhythmic control. Not to be missed, this is one out of the box." —Leon Gettler, The AGE
I grew up listening to my father's Jazz records and listening to radio. My dad was a musician for many years as a vocalist, bassist and drummer. His two uncles played in the Symphony of Reggio Calabria back in Italy
I grew up listening to my father's Jazz records and listening to radio. My dad was a musician for many years as a vocalist, bassist and drummer. His two uncles played in the Symphony of Reggio Calabria back in Italy. So music and jazz specifically have been a part of me since I was born. I love and perform in all styles of music from around the world. Improvisation in jazz is what drew me in, and still does as well as other genres that feature improvisation. A group of great musicians expressing themselves as one is the hallmark of great jazz and in fact all great music.
