“ade ishs is one of the most engaging live jazz performers I have encountered. There is no distance between ade and his audience. Everyone is invited in and embraced by the charm of his personality, the accessibility and richness of his music and the fluidity of his improvisation which seems to respond not only to what is happening in ade’s mind and heart but to what is happening in the audience’s heart.” - Simon Williams, Inner FM Melbourne

Up-and-coming composer/pianist ade ishs recently travelled alongside his accomplished trio with drummer Alex Roper and bassist Rory Brown to Bali to perform at the Ubud Village Jazz Festival.

Local Indonesia magazine Jazzuality reviewed the performance, “Simply lovely feel-good show from ade ishs Trio, we hope to see him here again some other times.”

In this show at Paris Cat, they will reenact the lovely feel-good show for Melburnians as well as showcasing new works.

Ade’s music has been described as “strong…and beautiful” (Ivan Lloyd, ABC Jazz), “sensational and colourful” (Angela Jones, Inner FM), and “expressive” (Steve Sedergreen).

After living his formative years in Indonesia, ade migrated to Australia. He has performed together with Dung Nguyen (Australia), Geoff Kluke (Australia), Daigo Nakai (Germany), Benny Likumahuwa (Indonesia), Candra Malik (Indonesia), and many other musicians in Australia and Indonesia of various genres. He has been invited to play at such prestigious festivals as Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Ubud Village Jazz Festival (Bali), Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues Festival, and St Kilda Festival. More recently, he served as the Musical Director of Celebration of Indonesia, a musical depicting various Eastern Indonesian cultures in the forms of music, dance, and drama showcased to a packed crowd at the Melbourne Town Hall.

“The smile that is across his solos, the sometimes pugilistic attack, the open-heartedness, never afraid to play pretty but also never afraid to drop a dissonance, sweet-and-sour…” - John Hardaker,

“… I have become a great admirer of his approach and desire to succeed as a contemporary jazz pianist.” - Steve Sedergreen
