Way Out West presents cross-cultural, uniquely Australian jazz. Their exotic sound is fuelled by a beautiful curiosity for African rhythms, jazz harmonies, Asian traditional instrumentation and the spirit of jazz improvisation. Based in the inner west of Melbourne, the ensemble, led by trumpeter/composer Peter Knight features Paul Williamson (saxophones), Lucas Michailidis (guitar), Ray Pereira (percussion), Howard Cairns (bass) James McLean (drums) and Sydney-based koto-maestro Satsuki Odamura.

Winner of the 2009 Bell Award for Best Australian Jazz Ensemble their engaging live show has led them to tour Korea, Japan, Chile, Norway, England, Italy, and Canada, making WOW one of the most widely travelled jazz exports Australia has produced.

Bringing their Eastern-influenced sound Southside for Stonnington Jazz, the outfit will perform works from their latest self-titled release, lauded Best Jazz Album at the 2016 Age Music Victoria Awards.
