MADAMSHAZZ

Friday 22nd July 2016

Time: 7:00 pm 

 

 

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; Christophe “he’s French” Geneoux- reeds and mouth percussion.


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

 

 

Genre: Jazz/Cabaret

Venue: Basement, The Paris Cat, 6 Goldie Place, Melbourne 3000

Tickets: $25

DEVONPORT JAZZ FESTIVAL

SEDERGREEN and ALLAN

Saturday 30th July 2016

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm 

and

Sunday 31st July 2016

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm 

 

 

A new jazz duo has evolved from the galaxy of Australian musical stars.
Pianist and composer, Bob Sedergreen and singer-songwriter Geoff Allan are doing something new. Blending the risk and response of jazz, Sedergreen’s sensibility for groove and fun, and Allan’s funk and rhythm, they explore their partnership and different musical beginnings.


Their on-stage chemistry is intense. Together they shape, layer and build performances full of tension, challenge and risk. The charm of their personal rapport pulls audiences into the performance, a thoroughly engaging and moving experience of rhythm and groove.
This musical adventure is mostly unchartered, improvisation and originality laced with challenge and humour, though 100 years of musical experience offers recognisable landmarks as Sedergreen and Allan share beautifully lyrical stories and original songs.


Sedergreen and Allan are preparing to cut a classic vinyl record at Gearbox Records, part of the legendary Tileyard Studio complex in London, in early 2017.

 

Venue: Devonport Entertainment Centre Centenary Court, 145 Rooke St, Devonport TAS
Tickets: $25 Adults / $20 Concessions

Time: 9:00 pm 

 

 

Free Spirits, featuring Bob Sedergreen, keyboard, David Jones, drum/percussion and   Scott Dunbabin, bass

This group received phenomenal audience reaction at their first gig at the Lido.

 

“I loved it. We are so lucky to have such experienced accomplished & passionate masters in their field who have a beautiful willingness to share, create & listen to each other for an extraordinary outcome for all? “Jaya

 

“The Trio captivated as they took the audience on a 2 hour fun filled, improvised musical journey, spanning the careers of all 3 players. What was created was music to inspire the next generation. The experience made me feel ecstatic, I'm still buzzing! A must see, world class music ensemble.” Ollie 19

 

A night of spontaneous jazz created in the moment

David Jones is not only Australia’s iconic percussionist but in demand internationally. David is no stranger to jazz having played and recorded with the Brian Brown (OAM) and Don Burrows (OAM). David and Bob have also recorded together on the albums “Intuition” and ”Bells make Me Sing”. Their musical relationship spans some 35 years.

 

The same applies to Scott Dunbabin, who toured and recorded with?Bob for a decade in “Blues on the Boil”, the only band from the jazz scene to truly define Texas and Chicago Blues. Scott’s unique sound comes from his specially created bass. Scott spent some years playing free jazz with the legendary Brian Brown (Dec). Bob, David and Scott are protégées of this incredibly gifted and passionate musician
