The Melbourne Jazz Co-Operative presents music on Sunday nights
Restless and rhythmic, Claire Cross’ project ‘Moving Targets’ explores the experiences of stress, love, lust and loss through lyrical and unpredictable compositions. A blend of folk idioms with rich contemporary jazz harmony is woven throughout, with the band moving seamlessly from brisk intensity to immersive melancholy performance, underscoring the theme of how transient our feelings can be, never frozen in time. My desire is a Moving Target.
Margie Lou has held down a residency at St Kilda’s fantastic jazz bar and seafood restaurant Claypots for nearly a decade, making Sunday nights a regular treasure for all. Her gravelly, astonishingly expressive voice is reminiscent of the best women of early jazz, like Bessie Smith or Billie Holiday; Her blues tinged, heavy grooving, New Orleans-style piano playing is unique in Melbourne.
