Pianist/composer Pat Jaffe returns to the Jazzlab with his new sextet, following their sold-out Jazzlab debut earlier in the year. The sextet features some of the most exciting young voices on the Melbourne scene; Flora Carbo (alto saxophone), Jonathan Cooper (tenor saxophone), Callum Mintzis (trombone), Robbie Finch (bass) and Soren Maryasin (drums). For this Saturday afternoon concert, they will be presenting a mix of Jaffe’s compositions from his debut album, ‘Eldorado’, and newer contributions from the other band members.
Melbourne based sextet ‘Cannonball’ presents its take on the timeless works of jazz/groove/soul master Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley.
Fronted by acclaimed vocalist Chantal Mitvalsky, and featuring some of Australia’s finest jazz musicians, Cannonball will captivate you with its blend of soulful classics, infused with jazz, blues & gospel, and cemented in a deep, infectious groove.
