The Dilworths are the brainchild of emerging Sydney trumpeter/composer Eamon Dilworth and began as an improvisational vehicle for Eamon’s compositions. They have since evolved into one of Australia’s freshest young groups finding the perfect balance of modern jazz influences, lending from American and European traditions while embracing the raw earthiness of their Australian roots. The band having performed individually everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House and launched their debut album on Jazzgroove Records in December 2009 with special guest Judy Bailey performing set of solo piano.
The Dilworths performances have included frequent appearances at Jazzgroove @ The Excelsior and 505 as well as the Ivory Bar, on a double bill with the Warwick Alder Quintet, the Jazz Action Society 35th Anniversary Concert, and album launch at The Basement as well as part of the Jazzgroove Festival 2010.
The band was nominated for the 2009 European Jazz Awards and features four James Morrison Generations in Jazz Finalists including one winner.
Future plans include regional tours in April and October 2010 and upcoming performances at 505 and SIMA while continuing to promote the new album release.
