Sweet Ade is a recorder-led jazz band, “trad” but non-traditional. Inspired by the recorder playing of the late, great Australian multi-instrumentalist Ade Monsbrough, its eclectic repertoire includes early Australian jazz including tunes by Monsbrough, ragtime, jazz standards and klezmer. The musicians for this week’s gig will be: Marion Lustig (recorders), Peter Mason (clarinet, tenor and soprano saxophones, vocals, recorder, ukelele), Lisette Payet (piano, vocals, ukulele, piano accordion), Clint Smith (banjo), Joe Kenyon (sousaphone), Ken Farmer (washboard and drums), and Janet Arndt (vocals).
