Michelle Nicolle Quartet: JS Bach, with jazz impro!


Michelle Nicolle has forged a reputation nationally and internationally as a celebrated and creative jazz vocalist-musician. Together with Geoff Hughes on guitar, Tom Lee on bass, and Ronny Fenella on drums, the Michelle Nicolle Quartet (MNQ) has established itself as one of Australia's leading contemporary jazz ensembles since 1999, developing a truly unique approach to the interpretation of jazz standards, contemporary pop songs, and now with the release of their 9th album, the music of J.S. Bach. One of the great improvisers of his time, Bach is a perfect fit for the MNQ’s arrangements which showcase his compositional mastery and add a new flavour to the improvisational focus in these great works.
