2010 performances are now complete.  Thanks so much to our artists and audiences and the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust for making them such a success.  If you would like to be kept in the loop for future performances please do join our mailing list.

The Java Quartet is well schooled in the Jazz tradition and has built on those concepts in presenting music with dash and a contemporary flair." Frank Rubolino, Cadence Magazine.  On the local front they have played at every major jazz venue and festival in the country.



“Shadow Dancing” was nominated for an APRA for “Most Performed Jazz Work” by the national performing rights association. Kenny Weir of The Sun Herald Sun (Melbourne) succinctly evaluated the group’s appeal when reviewing the next album Deep Blue Sea: “Mostly, though, the Java Quartet inhabits its own space, unlike that of any other aggregation, in Australia or anywhere else - supremely melodic, full of taut, yet limpid, grooves and packed with soul”.

2010 finds the group extending its musical palette with Rejavanation, a collection of remixes and new material incorporating the meditative aesthetics of contemporary dj/dance culture and Hindustani ragas.


Core members:
Michael Galeazzi - acoustic bass
Mike Quigley - drums
Matt Ottignon - sax
Featured Guest:
Bobby Singh - tabla
