Rhythmic jazz

A Very Coast Xmas Party (Live Recording)

Coast will ring in the new year and record a live album on this great night of music. 

“The relentless grind of modern life on the precipice is reflected in this music,” says Derricott of the album. “COAST draws inspiration from the Sydney coastline, the thin line between bobbing our heads up and down above the water and the unrelenting energy of the ocean that surrounds.”
 Cleverly layered instrumentals, wide-sweeping tones and engaging compositions, COAST's ear-catching debut is an inspiring beginning to their own jazz renaissance. Find yourself washed clean under the music’s improvisational flow, the driving rhythms and the expansive melodies that the ensemble has pieced together – a veritable tide of funk and fury.

Paul Derricott - Drums, Peter Koopman - Guitar, Shannon Stitt - Keys,  Michael Avgenicos -  Sax & Dave Quinn - Bass


As a follow-up to a fantastic, energetic and technically astounding album, Skim does more than continue Coast’s trend of bringing to life some of Australia’s finest, most intricately textured progressive jazz. Skim represents a successful exploration into new compositional heights for Coast, proving that lightning can indeed strike twice in the same place. For anyone with an ear for instrumental music, complex and engaging drumming and beautiful saxophone-driven textures, this album will surely be a darling of the critics. 

"Every aspect of COAST embodies what “modern” jazz should represent.”" - Heavy Blog Is Heavy
"COAST continue their march toward legendary status with Skim. The energy and cohesion that is found within every composition make for an engaging and exciting listen that will enthral even the most jaded fan of jazz."  - Everything Is Noise

‘This is fresh modern music that is beautiful, energising, inventive, creative…beautifully played, thoughtfully conceived, interesting, funky and lyrical all at the same time. I highly recommend immersing yourself in this wonderful band that is immediately accessible and rewards repeat listening’ -Sandy Evans
