Arkest is a Brisbane based jazz ensemble led by jazz vibraphonist/percussionist, Joe Chow, passionate about connecting with people through their music. The band was formed to share and perform music enjoyed by the band members, such as jazz standards and contemporary jazz.
The band features Queensland Conservatorium students – Joe Chow on jazz vibraphone, Royce Jenner on guitar, Goran Gajic on double bass and Mark Davies on drum kit.
Arkest skilfully blends dense, exciting improvisations and delicate atmospherics. The unique timbre and music from this ensemble is influenced by world and fusion music by composing and arranging tunes in different styles.
