Alister Spence | Back

A lifelong resident of Sydney, Alister Spence is not only amongst the finest (perhaps the finest) pianists in Australia, but is gradually being recognised as one of the most original players anywhere in world jazz. Whilst his playing embraces elements of free improvisation and the use of electronic samples, he retains a rhythmic excitement balanced by lyrical beauty that place him firmly in the tradition of the great jazz pianists. Tours of Europe, North America and the Far East have enhanced his international reputation, with UK magazine Jazzwise commenting that "Spence has that priceless gift of always leaving you wanting more".
