Award winning Brisbane-based composer and performer Rafael Karlen has teamed up with renowned pianist Steve Newcomb and guitarist Toby Wren for an intimate trio project with new album Trace.
Released in December 2016, Trace recently received a four-star review in The Weekend Australian. Featuring original compositions, a Swedish folksong, a Renaissance "Kyrie" by Dufay, and a "Serenade" by Schubert, Trace elegantly traverses a compelling variety of material.
★★★★ “This is a collection of rhythmless, colourful interpretations in unhurried settings where peaceful interplay between sax, guitar and piano is explored with ability and sensitivity.” John McBeath, The Weekend Australian
