2017 Young Elder of Jazz: Hue Blanes
Congratulations to Hue Blanes, winner of the sixth PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission!
Hue will create a new work – Things That Have Been Said – an instrumental work that uses famous (and infamous) quotes from history as the source material for a suite of new works.
The work will be performed by a quartet that brings together musicians with backgrounds in both jazz and classical music, and will premiere at the 2017 Festival.
Hue said “I have seen many friends and colleagues win this great PBS award and I’m thrilled to be a part of next year’s Melbourne International Jazz Festival.”
Now in its 6th year, this important initiative recognises significant mid-career Victorian jazz musicians, and continues to reflect the diversity and quality of contemporary jazz in Melbourne. Past winners include Tamara Murphy, Tim Willis (Current Monash PhD student), Tilman Robinson, Joe O’Connor (Monash Alumni PhD) and Gian Slater.
