HIS smooth jazz tones have graced stages on in­ter­na­tional pop­u­lar US talk shows, jazz clubs and ma­jor in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­vals.

Now Carlisle-born sax­o­phone player Jeremy Tre­zona has touched back down on home soil to launch his new al­bum at the Elling­ton Jazz Club.

“This show at the Elling­ton is re­ally like a home­com­ing for me, I haven’t been back in Perth for about two years,” Tre­zona (27) said.

“It’s re­ally a dual home­com­ing and record re­lease show of my new al­bum.

“The gig it­self will be a mix­ture of songs I like play­ing or mean some­thing to me, and the se­cond half will be my orig­i­nal stuff.”

Cur­rently based in LA, Tre­zona has spent the past two years liv­ing a mu­si­cian’s dream, as he tours with band Saint Mo­tel.

“I guess I’m in two worlds at the mo­ment. On the one hand, I have my own jazz mu­sic which is very dear to me, but I just play that to small crowds,” he said.

“Then on the other side, there’s rock band Saint Mo­tel.

“The first tour I did with them was sup­port­ing the Arc­tic Mon­keys, and we’ve played at Coachella and on a whole bunch of US talk shows like Jimmy Kim­mel Live and Co­nan O’Brien.”

Tre­zona re­leased a solo jazz al­bum late last year and said the band Saint Mo­tel was work­ing on its next to be re­leased mid-2016.

Tre­zona will play at the Elling­ton Jazz Club this month.
