With her sweetly sophisticated singing Annemarie bravely leads a collection of Melbourne’s premier Jazz and Roots misfits:


Bob Sedergreen - keyboards and shiraz
Dale Lindrea - tenor guitar and beats Hil Bywater – sax.


Taking a well worn Bossa Nova book lavished with 60’s ballads and a happy handful of cabaret pizzazz this delightful ensemble  is far from a typical Melbourne Jazz experience...

Three jazz immortals, Brubeck, master of cool jazz, Monk, high priest of bebop and Carmen McRae, Jazz singer extraordinaire.

Annette Yates was chosen by American Jazz legend Micky Tucker as his rhythm section and since his retirement she has been a constant companion on bass with Bob.  For this gig the indefatigable Mark Voogd will join them on drums.
