Matilda Simcock Quintet
Rising vocalist Matilda Simcock, and her stellar band will transport through a splendid afternoon of three unique sets of music. The band will transport you through the stories of the greats, the heart breaks, the triumphs and the quirky in-betweens. From the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Sarah Vaughan, to Nina Simone, Shirley Bassey, and Carmen McRae, not forgetting Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and all the jazz greats in-between, prepare to be transported through the rich and wonderful life of the ‘jazz standard’. Over the past two years, Matilda has united her knowledge of composition, arranging and performance to celebrate her love of poetry, as she brings to life the works of 19th century poet Emily Dickinson through the power of music. Matilda hopes to share her music with you, capturing the essence of contemporary, blues and soul music, while conveying the emotions of hope, longing, selfless love and madness. Come and indulge in an unforgettable afternoon of laughs, tears, tales and show tunes and enjoy the music of the jazz greats, as there is sure to be a song sung for everyone. Matilda Simcock, vocals, Ben Matthews piano, Anthony Dodos trombone, Alistair Peel bass, TBC drums.
Gemma Farrell is a saxophonist, WAAPA lecturer and PhD candidate, leader of WAYJO’s Young Women in Jazz program, and the Musical Director and founder of the Artemis Orchestra.

Joining them for this performance will be WAAPA students, James O’Brien piano, Arvis Del Vadado bass, and Jeremy Goinden drums.
The Broadway Swing
Please join Chris Ross and his amazing band for an evening of musical classics from the 40’s and 50’s. There’s a selection of well-known songs from Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, and even Al Jolson gets a look in. We have long admired the era of the music known as The American Songbook. These instantly familiar songs have stood the test of time and have been brought to our attention again by performers such as Michael Buble, Rod Stewart, Dianna Krall. Glenn Miller’s ‘In the Mood’ is never going away ... Sinatra’s‘Got you under my skin’, first recorded in 1946, is still a firmfavourite. Al Jolson’s ‘Mammy’ is a track that gets the crowd
joining in whenever it’s performed. Do not miss this swinging musical event ... our fabulous horn section includes the tremendous talents of Paul Millard on sax, Mark Underwood on trumpet and Kieran Hurley on trombone. Come reminisce with these songs and many more
when Chris Ross and his 7 piece band ‘The Broadway Swing’ showcase them at Jazz Fremantle.
