KJBF 2022 Closing Party. After a pumping weekend filled with talent from all over the country come to Fillmore's as we celebrate the weekend just been with the fabulous Mister Ott. Artists from the weekend may just jump on stage too as we all get a little loose.
Mister Ott is a Sydney jazz sextet merging mesmerising eastern sounds, tight jazz funk, hypnotic grooves with melismatic horn lines and high calibre ecstatic solos. Mister Ott takes you on a journey, to another place and time where you lose your self in the music.With a keen ear and an expansive range of musical experiences, Matthew’s original compositions for his own band, Mister Ott, comprise an amalgamation of melodies from many lands, in particular Ethiopian music, aligned with the free-form improvisation and syncopation for which African-pedigreed jazz is renowned. Mister Ott has three releases, the most recent being ‘In The Flow’ 2021.
“The friendliest possible party vibe, making you feel like you’ve returned to a familiar neighbourhood where the whole street loves you."

'This high energy album features superb compositions and writing for the horns, and it’s here that Ottignon truly shines, as only a jazz musician could write such hip, convincing lines"
