Together with group leader Gemma Farrell on saxophones, the group is Sam Hadlow on trombone, Dan Garner on guitar, Kate Pass on bass, and Ryan Daunt on drums. Originally from Perth, Farrell has studied at conservatories in Australia and the Netherlands and forged a reputation as one of Australia’s finest jazz composers and performers, playing alongside numerous musical legends, including John Farnham, Branford Marsalis, and James Morrison. She is passionate about jazz education, lecturing at a number of institutions, with a focus on young women in jazz.
GFQ’s ability to break free from preconceived expectations of the jazz canon sees them create beautiful compositions that somehow still retain a familiar sense of belonging.
