Travel back in time as we reimagine our favourite New Wave songs from artists Kate Bush, David Bowie, Echo & The Bunnymen, Madness and more. As incongruous as it may seem to mix four jazz artists with a synthesized genre born out of punk and rock’n’roll, there are of course many similarities between jazz and the New Wave movement. Both had a global impact on society, fashion and culture; and without a doubt defined a generation. With beautiful arrangements by James Sherlock and Ben Grayson, this will be a special concert previously requested for the launch of British Artists Gilbert & George at MONA in Hobart, and at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
