BOB SEDERGREEN & FRIENDS

It’s a mad, mad band!

Sunday 14th November 2021

Time: Doors open 3:30, Show 4:00 pm

 

 

A glorious afternoon in the Ruby Carter Jazz Lounge with Bob Sedergreen and Friends featuring Fem Belling, Gianni Marinucci, Evripedes Evripidu and working Mark Voogd. It’s a Mad, Mad Band!

Iconic Melbourne Jazz pianist, Bob Sedergreen loves to be the lynch pin presenting musicians who deserve to be recognised in their own right but this time he’s gone too far choosing musicians from multiple settings who have never performed together. Including:

Fem Belling– voice & violin. Fem grew up playing and singing Jazz as part of a well-known South African musical family. She then spent time working gigs and stage shows London’s West End. Fem’s vivacious personality and fun loving nature together with a fearless approach has made her a household name in Melbourne’s jazz community

Gianni Marinucci,- trumpet/flugelhorn, a distinctive voice on horn, reminiscent of players like Chet Baker, Art Farmer and Bobby Shew. A sophisticated international Gianni fronts two in demand bands Swing Shift and his Nonet.

Mark Voogd- drummer. Mark Voogd is a modern jazz drummer reminiscent of the style of Jimmy Cobb, a tasteful, versatile, and sensitive player who responds perfectly to his fellow musicians.

Jon Chidgee -Bass ,Jon has worked with Bob for many years now in many different settings- Stonnington Jazz Showband for 10 years and with many different performers at The Paris Cat, Lido and Southside Jazz

Don’t miss this one-off performance!

BOB SEDERGREEN AND FRIENDS

Featuring Emma Gilmartin and Savannah Blount

Friday 26th November 2021

Time: 6:00 pm

 

 

Melbourne jazz pianist Bob Sedergreen feels privileged to have mentored generations of promising young jazz musicians. As patron of Canberra’s Jazz-about Festival he ran into Gareth Hill on bass and Sam Young on drums. Both completed music degrees at ANU and headed for Melbourne, where Gareth joined Bob as a member of The Ted Vining Trio and also the band BLOW. Sam joined BLOW following Ted Vining relocating to Hobart. They are an experienced and tight rhythm section

 

Bob encountered vocalist,Emma Gilmartin as a student at the VCA.  Both Bob and pianist Tony Gould, were quick to recognise her talent. Today Emma Gilmartin is not only a popular and brilliant singer, a much loved artist by all who are lucky enough to come into contact with her.

 

Tenor saxophonist, Savannah Blount, was also mentored not only by Bob but also the late great iconic reedman, Don Burrows. Savannah’s relaxed approach and big warm tenor sound is unmissable. Strangely enough Bob chose this band to accompany American gospel singer Marilyn Keller when she toured here, a decade ago.

Join these warm and gifted performers as they spread love throughout the room.
