SIMA Summer Jazz Series (Sydney),
Clarence Jazz Festival (Tas), words about Still Night in Resonate Magazine (AMC),
Love in Solitude @ the Utzon Room Sydney Opera House, plus Jazzlab & Uptown Jazz Cafe residencies...
Hello! I hope all is well in your worlds.
Here is some information on what I'm up to this month, and some words and music I'd love to share with you.
I recently wrote some words about the Still Night: Music in Poetry song cycle/album. They've been put online in Resonate Magazine (The Australian Music Centre). You can read them here.
'Still Night: Music in Poetry' the album is available in digital and CD formats.
You can purchase it in both forms from Bandcamp here or in physical form only from my website here.
(NB there is a digital download card included in the CD package).
The following are special events I'm involved with this month, including a couple of trips to Sydney, a trip to Tassie, plus the program details for Monday nights @ the Jazzlab & Transient THURSDAYS @ Uptown Jazz Cafe. (Transients have moved to Thursday nights @ Uptown from this month onwards).
You can also find information in the events guide on my website.
