Sunshine in Queensland, plus Mondays @ the Jazzlab and Transient Thursdays @ Uptown and more...


Things are relatively quiet on the gig-front for me in Melbourne this month, as I'm heading to Queensland on two occasions during July - firstly, for a much needed holiday, and secondly, to be a jazz judge at the Aspire Festival on the Gold Coast. In my absence I have some brilliant musicians filling in for me at both my Jazzlab and Uptown residencies, including Xani Kolac, Tony, Gould, and Sam Keevers!!!

Five Below's performance in the Elizabeth Murdoch Hall at the Melbourne Recital Centre last night supporting German neo-classical pianist Hauschka was a lot of fun. I still have a limited number of Hoodies available (4 to be precise) - you can reply to this email, visit my Bandcamp page, or come to a Five Below gig (generally the last monday of the month) at the Jazzlab to purchase one.

The recent Piano Club gig with Steve Grant & Darrin Archer at the Jazzlab was a beautiful night. I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to present events like this on a regular basis at the Jazzlab. The next one (Monday July 22) will be a ripper with Tony Gould & Harry Cook. 

Full details on the various personnel listings for my Monday nights at the Jazzlab and Thursday nights at Uptown Jazz Cafe can be found below.

I hope to see you out there :)  

Thanks for reading and supporting creative Australian music!
