Luke Howard Trio

The Jazzlab

Australian Music Prize-nominated composer Luke Howard has been described as “absolutely heavenly” (Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC Radio 6) and his music as “an ambient masterclass” (Musos’ Guide), but no words can fully capture the potency of Howard’s enthralling compositions.

Nina Ferro & Joe Chindamo

When you hear Nina Ferro perform, should you not quite believe your ears, then put your faith in Tony Bennett’s immaculate taste. After she had opened for him in concert, the great vocalist said of Nina Ferro: “She’s a fabulous performer with a knockout voice”. But you don’t need Mr. Bennett’s highly discerning musical ear to realize he is right. Once she starts to sing, you’ll know instantly that you are in the presence of a formidable talent. Just check your vital signs. Goosebumps? Check. Spine tingling? Absolutely. Emotions uplifted? You bet!

For this show Nina will be joined by pianist and long-time collaborator Joe Chindamo, considered a world class jazz pianist, whose individual sound and style has won him many accolades and an international reputation that has seen him perform at such prestigious venues and events as Umbria Jazz Festival, The Tokyo Dome and The Lincoln Centre in New York.
Her shows sell out fast, so don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of Australia’s finest vocalists in action!
