Julian Curwin (composer/leader of The Tango Saloon and The Mango Balloon) is about to launch a new album and project – named ‘Midnight Lullaby’, it is essentially a collection of dark lullabies, blending jazz, classical, film music and latin sounds. The album features an all-star ensemble of pianist Stu Hunter (The Migration, Tina Harrod, Moniker), bassist Lloyd Swanton (The Necks, Ambon, The catholics) and percussionist Jess Ciampa (Spaghetti Western Orchestra, The Tango Saloon, Brandenburg Orchestra).
Sadly, due to social distancing there will be no album launch. However, the Midnight Lullaby band will perform live, streamed by Johnston Street Jazz on May 7 at 8pm! Check it out at the Johnston Street facebook (can be viewed even without an account).
‘Midnight Lullaby’ is available for preorder now through Bandcamp.
