The 2013 release of the debut album from The Jo Fabro Quintet saw Jo step firmly into the spotlight of the Australian Jazz Scene.
This self-titled release – JFQ, draws on Fabro’s experiences, a combination of tunes written over the past 7 years, as well as songs written specifically for this album. JFQ is firmly rooted in the jazz genre, with hints of soul and blues music, which Fabro sights as an influence in her musical tastes.
The new album feels like a coming of age for Fabro. “I have spent a few years looking for the right combination of musicians and tunes for this band,” says Fabro. “It really feels like everything has come together for this record”. The Band features Australian Jazz Heavyweights Pianist Greg Coffin (Greg Coffin Trio, Kristen Berardi Band), guitarist Aaron Flower (Dunedes, Vince Jones), bassist Brendan Clarke (Bernie McGann Quartet, Mothership Orchestra), and drummer Miles Thomas (Gerard Masters, Pen Island).
“Fabro’s singing is full of musical brilliance, vivacity and wit. Feeling is high from the first note. When it comes to emotion, Fabro releases it effortlessly.” – John Clare
