This is not a “Standing Tall” gig but a special jazz night at The Open Studio (204 High Street, Northcote) featuring two other bands that I am in: “Blowout” featuring Robert Pettinato on drums, Peter Ryan on guitar, Colin Garrett on tenor saxophone and myself on bass (6 to 7.30pm); and “The Rory Clarke Trio” featuring Rory Clarke on piano, Mike Hirsh on drums and myself on bass (8 to 10pm). Rory is a well-known pianist and composer with several albums to his credit. Don Brow of Jazz Scene Magazine describes him as a “New young jazz pianist of enviable talent”. This will be a great night of modern swinging jazz.
The regular monthly spot for “Standing Tall” at The Open Studio, from 4.30 to 7.30 on a Sunday afternoon.
Celebrate your Melbourne Cup winnings (or commiserate with your losses) at Dizzy’s Jazz Bar (381 Burnley Street, Richmond) starting at 8pm. We will be featuring a number of new tunes and arrangements that are bound to get you up and dancing! Dinner and table bookings at 9428 1233.
Hope to see you at these gigs
