Square One is the debut album from up-and-coming composer and producer Jade Kerber. Recorded at the end of 2015, the album blends Contemporary Jazz textures with influences from Funk, Latin, Fusion and Progressive styles of music, creating a rich and unique sound that is appealing to both mainstreams music audiences and Jazz enthusiasts alike.
Featuring performances by premier Australian Jazz artists such as Mat Jodrell, Jordan Murray, Phil Turcio, Craig Newman and Darryn Farrugia, SQUARE ONE showcases amazing virtuosity on a variety of instruments. Incredible solos, paired with subtle arranging techniques and elegant compositions, made this album one of the most exciting new Jazz albums of 2016, receiving a nomination for Best Instrumental Jazz Album of the Year at the 2016 Independent Music Awards in New York, as well as collecting 4 nominations at the Australian Independent Music Awards including shortlisting Jade as a finalist for Jazz Artist of the Year.
