Lew's Xmas Jam.
EVENT SOLD OUT
Annual Jazz Fremantle Xmas Lunch
– Helping to celebrate this traditional annual event and
providing high quality jazz listening during the lunch will be Club
Patron and vocalist Libby Hammer. As usual, the very fine
backing group will
be: Alister McEvoy
(Saxophone), Nick Abbey(Bass),
(Piano) and Michael Perkins
(Drums). Libby will entertain us with her infectious stage presence and
abundance of jazz vocal talent.
Lew Smith and Friends
will be yet another fitting finale to the end of the jazz year at Jazz
Fremantle, with ‘jazz elder statesman’ and club favourite Lew Smith (Flute/Reeds) bringing
together a group of friends and surprise guests playing with a great
Rhythm Section. The latter are: Garry
Lee (Vibes/Guitar), Don Gomes
(Piano), Peter Evans (Drums),
and Kate Pass (Bass). In the
best tradition of the jazz idiom, there is a promise of great variety,
entertainment and above all some fine playing.
Allira Wilson Quintet
now based in Melbourne, Allira
Wilson (Vocals), is well known on the Perth Jazz Scene, having
sung with Jamie Oehlers’ Blowfish, The Mace Francis Orchestra and
WAYJO. Allira has also appeared at The Wangaratta Jazz Festival.
Supporting her ‘brave and raw’ but ‘supple and
intricate’ approach to some lesser known songs from the American
Song Book will be Harry Mitchell
(Piano), Chris Sealey (Guitar), Bronton Ainsworth (Drums) and Robin Murray (Bass).
The Rogue Gypsies
extremely talented group of younger musicians who are all making a name
for themselves in their own right. Coming together in this context,
they bring to life, with great ‘pizazz and invention’, the
exciting swing sound of The Hot Club of France. Augmenting the concept
of this original model are Anea
Duratovic (Vocals) and Adrian
Galante (Clarinet) who have already both appeared on stage with
James Morrison. The rest of this equally impressive line-up are Sarah Clare (Bass), Glen Rodgers (Guitar) and Aaron Deacon (Guitar)
