Well after a year of unavoidable delays, the Compass Quartet finally recorded our much anticipated Indian project on the weekend! The album features the music of Jeremy Rose and Sandy Evans with guest artists, Bobby Singh (Tabla) and Sarangan (Sitar). Below is a little taste from the recording…completely un-edited grab from the ending of one of Jeremy’s pieces…we hope to release the album by the end of the year!
currently working on rehearsing for our latest recording project with Bobby Singh. Recording will happen around August for release later in 2010!

ABOUT THE VENUE
“…Sydney’s most exclusive underground music venue….” that looks like a cross between Wonderland and Austen Powers’ dream dwelling. Cosy couch corners with plush velvet upholstery, eccentric decorations from Monsieur Camembert’s collection of designer and retro bric a brac, the most amazing objects d’art, bizarre kitsch and all sorts of, well, quirky stuff. Its also BYOG and you can bring your own snacks or picnic or enjoy the in-house Woodfire Pizza. Cool drinks and coffee/tea are also available.
I’s honestly not just a venue, it’s a fantasy! The sound and atmosphere reminds me of all the things we love and miss about Europe. It’s got loads of atmosphere, warmth, eccentricity, with touches of offbeat humour everywhere.
Being there gives you the feeling of being part of something truly special and rare.
Location : email to get on the mailing-list (which contains all details including the street address). This might sound strange, but it is SOOO worth it!!
Phone 4751 7500 for reservations – reservations recommended. Have credit card ready.
Thanks to all the folk from Newcastle who came out to support our ABC Sunday Live concert and for all those across Australia who tuned in. Hope you enjoyed it! We definitely had a blast playing!
