STAY UP LATE FOR ALL THAT JAZZ
Brisbane’s specialist jazz school Jazz Music Institute (JMI) has been delivering courses since 1997. Now every Friday night in July, JMI Live will present a selection of different jazz styles spanning 100 years.
It all starts swinging on 7 July with The Music of Duke Ellington featuring the E.M.O. (Enthusiastic Musicians Orchestra). On 14 July Sharny Russell will pay tribute to the sultry sounds of Ella Fitzgerald, and on 21 July see Bop Culture, a handful of Brisbane’s grooviest musicians, present repertoire from some of the most soulful and swinging ensembles in the history of jazz.
The series will conclude on 28 July with the Gai Bryant Quintet’s unique take on energetic Cuban jazz styles.
JMI Up Late Series is presented by Queensland Music Festival, Brisbane City Council and Jazz Music Institute.
