I advertise this in part as protest at the $99.90 price tag on concert tickets for the Branford Marsalis Quartet in March. What extortion! Friday night you will hear absolutely world-class contemporary jazz in a more intimate setting for a small percentage of that concert price! Support Live Jazz - particulalry SUPPORT LIVE AUSTRALIAN JAZZ.
Here's the blurb sent out by the Ellington Club:
8.00pm Jamie Oehlers' Blowfish with special guest Allira Wilson. Blowfish is a group that Jamie Oehlers led in Melbourne for nearly 10 years, regularly playing at festivals around Australia and at Bennett’s Lane in Melbourne with guest vocalists and also performing tributes to Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington and Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. This is a dynamic and energetic eight piece group that packs a lot of punch!
11.30pm Late night groove series featuring Tara Del Borrello. Tara is a fast rising star on the Perth scene. She has just completed her degree in Music at WAAPA and is making a much anticipated return appearance after singing with The Roast, The Chemist and also her own Late night groove show on NYE. She was a finalist in the 2004 Australian Idol and continues to forge a reputation as a fine singer.
