WANDERLUST first appeared on
the jazz scene in 1991 and quickly established a profile as an
exciting and innovative group. Their music is fresh and original
combining jazz improvisation with the diverse rhythms and melodies
of global music. Led by Miroslav Bukovsky, long recognised as
one of Australias best trumpeters and composers, Wanderlust
has attracted international attention resulting in appearances
at many of the major European jazz festivals.
Their debut CD Wanderlust
won the Best Jazz Album ARIA award in 1994. Subsequently
they have released four highly acclaimed albums, Border
Crossing, Song and Dance 'Full
Bronte' and their latest offering, 'When In Rome'.
Wanderlust brings together the
talents of six of Australia's best jazz instrumentalists. Together
they have developed a unique sound through highly original compositions,
superb ensemble work and imaginative improvisation and interplay.
Skillfully blending global beats with jazz improvisation, the
emphasis is on composition, texture and mood, rather than display
of individual virtuosity.
This is music to win hearts and
both in Australia and worldwide, they have captured audiences
and critics alike with their joyous, exhilarating music and infectious
Wanderlust brings together a collection
of musicians whose individual work has gained them many accolades.
