BOB SEDERGREEN AND FRIENDS

Saturday 21st October 2017

Time: 8:00 – 10:00 pm

 


After two extremely successful nights this year at The Lido Jazz , "The First One" return. Some two decades ago a trio of Rosa – Horbelt – Sedergreen became the last bastion of live music in Carlton’s famous Lygon Street Strip. They played outside the restaurant Il Primo literally translated as The First One, and recorded a CD of the same title mixing contemporary jazz classics with show tunes. They have somehow stuck together both musically and as friends despite their busy schedules.

For this gig the Trio will be joined by special guest, Oscar Rosa guitarist/vocalist who led the quartet The Hottentots, along with Ivan and Sonja. We invite you to once again to share the joy and empathy at this rare performance of this most cohesive ensemble.

Venue: Lido Jazz Room, 1/675 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn Vic

Tickets: $25/$20

Bookings: Tel: 03 8658 0000 or www.lidocinemas.com.

Featuring Axle Whitehead

Time: 9:30 pm

 

 

Jazz piano legend Bob Sedergreen first met Axle Whitehead at the VCA in ‘99. Impressed by Axle’s natural approach to improvisation and his love of risk taking, Bob decided to mentor him, both playing gigs in various venues around Melbourne.

 

Shortly after this Axle formed a band with trail blazing Sedergreen brothers, Steve and Mal, of Mistaken Identity who performed locally and interstate

 

Some years later Axle moved to Sydney to pursue a TV career.  These days Axle is in Los Angeles, picking up various acting TV shows and playing gigs at LA’s famous House of Blues.

 

Axle is returning to Oz to pick up where he left off and getting back to his roots of Jazz and Improvisation.

He will be reunited with his old sparring partner the explosive Mal Sedergreen on saxophone

 

For this one off special gig ,Kim May on bass & Darryn Farrugia on drums who have established themselves as prominent figures on the Melbourne scene, will join him

 

Guaranteed to be a night of laughs and musical risk taking!!
