Earlier this year Kate Ceberano and Paul Grabowsky finally put their longstanding friendship on record with the release of their debut album, Tryst, and this morning, their ode to love was voted 2019 Best Jazz Album at the ARIA Awards’ Season Launch event in Sydney.
The seed for this musical dalliance was planted over 20 years ago with a one-off St Valentine’s Day show at the legendary Melbourne venue ‘The Continental’. Little did they know that that performance would grow into a close and enduring friendship AND an ARIA Award!
Tryst is a very personal journey into words and music by two of Australia’s most respected musicians reinterpreting of some of the great love songs of our time. Kate and Paul deliver achingly, soulful renditions of songs that connect on a deep emotional level and have influenced both of them at some point in their lives.
“Kate and Paul had nothing to rely on except sheer talent. I’ll say it again … It was stunning” – Noise 11
Tryst is out now on ABC/Universal Music Australia.
