From award-winning pianist and composer Wilbur Whitta comes a musical call to action on climate change. Whitta has gathered together three of Sydney’s leading, young voices for this collaboration: Tom Avgenicos on trumpet, Jack Stoneham on alto sax and drummer Alex Inman-Hislop. Together, they form the band ‘Wildfire’, playing music that draws on environmental negligence in Australia and around the globe.

The band navigates Whitta’s music with a fierce intensity, presenting a unique distortion of the boundaries between the written and improvised. ABC Jazz is thrilled to be releasing their debut, self-titled album. Wildfire is a response to climate change-driven natural disasters in Australia, with a focus on what we stand to lose.

Originally from Canberra, Wilbur Whitta has performed extensively around Australia, the UK, Europe and Japan. He has appeared as a member of legendary Australian jazz outfit Ten Part Invention and has performed alongside acclaimed international artists Kit Downes and Will Vinson. He was selected as a finalist in the 2021 National Jazz Awards, and in 2019, while living in London, won the Dankworth Jazz Composition Award.
