JAZZ GREATS AT THE RED VELVET LOUNGE (Cygnet, Tas)

Saturday 25th February 2017

Time: 8:00 pm (2 x 45 min sets)

 

 

1970 Melbourne saw the formation of what became arguably the longest serving Jazz group in this country, if not the world – The Ted Vining Trio.

 

The death of bass player Barry Buckley in 2006 brought to a close a remarkable musical relationship lasting an incredible 36 years !

 

The Trio performed at Clubs and Festivals all over Australia, and as the rhythm section for the iconic Brian Brown Quartet, successfully touring the much lauded Scandinavian Jazz Festivals during 1978 for Australian Foreign Affairs – a first for an Australian Jazz group.

 

Ted Vining and Bob Sedergreen are still together after 47 years of music making, with current bass player Gareth Hill, however, for this Cygnet performance on Saturday February 25th, the bass chair will be occupied by now local resident Derek Capewell.  Derek has performed on many occasions over the years with both Ted and Bob, in a variety of settings.

 

Bob Sedergreen [keyboards] Widely recognised as a living National Treasure. Along with his own “Blues On The Boil” and “Art Attack” he was a core member, along with Ted, of the iconic Brian Brown Quartet, and has been fundamental to the identity and popularity of the Ted Vining Trio for over four decades.

 

Bob has also been the accompanist of choice for such Jazz luminaries as Dizzy Gillespie, Nat Adderley, Milt Jackson, Phil Woods, Ritchie Cole, blues legend Jimmy Witherspoon, and many more.

 

Ted Vining [drums] A cornerstone of Australian Jazz, a drum colossus and cultural force for over half a century.

Ted has toured with US Jazz greats Dizzy Gillespie, George Cables, Nat Adderley, Clifford Jordan, Lee Konitz and Mark Murphy amongst others, and has recorded and performed at major international and Australian Festivals with the Brian Brown Quartet, Ted Vining Trio, Alan Lee Quartet, Bernie McGann, Don Burrows, Musiikki Oy, BLOW and many others.

Ted has been resident in Hobart since 2010.

 

Derek Capewell [bass] Moved to Australia from London in 1957 and quickly established himself on the Melbourne Jazz scene, performing with the likes of Frank Smith, Alan Turnbull, Don Burrows, Bryce Rohde, Brian Brown, Tony Gould, Alan Lee, Ted Vining and Bob Sedergreen.

 

Concentrated mainly with session work in recording and TV studios; also backed numerous overseas visitors, including Dizzy Gillespie, Mel Torme, Clark Terry, and toured with Carmen McRae, Barney Kessell, Buddy de Franco and Cleo Lane/John Dankworth, with whom he recorded. Moved to Cygnet during 2016.

DEREB THE AMBASSADOR (Ethiopia/Australia) with the BLACK JESUS EXPERIENCE

Shoulder-shaking addictive rhythms

Friday 10th March2017

Time: 9:00 pm

 

 

Born in Ethiopia, Dereb Desalegn aka Dereb the Ambassador grew up surrounded by a family of musicians, immersed in his home country’s rich melange of sounds, rhythms and musical styles. Now calling Australia home, his mind- blowing vocal talents and addictive brand of Ethio-soul, enthralls a growing fan base that know there’s more to life than three-chord guitar rock.

 

Dereb and his band of virtuoso musicians breathe a kaleidoscope of texture into the possibilities for music in Australia – with the classic jazz-fusion sounds of 60s–70s Ethiopia, shoulder-shakingly rhythmical incarnations of traditional Ethiopian tunes, and a swag-full of spicy, hypnotic originals.

 

The Black Jesus Experience will kick the night off with their irresistible blend of traditional Ethiopian song and 21st Century grooves.

 

Venue: Brunswick Town Hall, 233 Sydney Road, Brunswick

THE FIRST ONE

Friday 15th  April 2017

Time: 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

 

 

After an extremely successful night in January, 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 Oscar Rosa guitarist/vocalist who has worked with them as The Hottentots.. We invite you to once again to share the joy and empathy at this rare performance of this most cohesive ensemble.

MADAMSHAZZ

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 60s ballads and a happy handful of cabaret pizzazz, this delightful quartet is far from a typical Melbourne Jazz experience....
