BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

This Adelaide Jazz Quintet carried the banner for progressive Jazz in the late 50’s. Raised some years prior by Bryce Rohde, Jake Brokensha, Errol Buddle, Alf Holyoak and Maurice Le Doueff, they patterned their style on along the lines adopted by Dave Brubeck, Gerry Mulligan and other modernists of the time.

The band reached the stage of technical virtuosity, balanced by a happy, healthy beat equally suitable for dancing and relaxed listening.
Alongside The Penny Rockets and the Ian Drinkwater Octet, they appeared in Kym Bonythons “Tempo of the Times”, Jazz and Rock’n’Roll spectacular in October of 1957.
