Allan Browne, Andrea Keller & Tamara Murphy formed their trio in 2003 for the Melbourne Women's International Jazz Festival and made magical masterpieces sound like the easy climbs of the Everest they have become as a trio. Continuing on with intermitent performances on Monday nights, they have managed to lay their tender tapestries down in an album that seems to know the B-line to the beating heart of your ear. Andrea Keller, the multi-award winning composer/pianist along with talented and awarded bass-playing Tamara Murphy bring the feminine and the poetic of Allan's playing into the fore.
Carried By The Sun is the luminous debut CD from the Keller/Murphy/Browne Trio. All are highly-regarded bandleaders in their own right. This trio however, has no leader; it is a genuinely collaborative enterprise. Featuring compositions by all three members, each piece unfolds like a three-way conversation, the focus shifting subtly from player to player without the need for bombast or empty technical displays.
