The Melbourne Jazz Co-Operative presents music on Sunday nights
Ted Nettelbeck has played jazz piano for more than 60 years, as well as composing. Relocated to Melbourne last year, he began his career in his hometown of Adelaide, followed by work in Melbourne in the late 1950s (at the famous venue, The Embers, in the House-band led by the legendary Frank Smith), after which he worked in England and Europe.
Winners of the 2017 MWIJF Recording Prize, Lijuka return to The Jazzlab to celebrate the release of their debut single ‘Registaan’.
Girls Do Jazz is a jazz ensemble comprised of current Jazz & Improvisation students at the Victorian College of the Arts. The ensemble is led by Andrea Keller, Lecturer in Jazz & Improvisation at the VCA/MCM.
Why did it take 20 years for trumpeter, composer and eternal sideman Eugene Ball to form a quartet under his own name? Because until then, he could not get James Macaulay (trombone – winner of the National Jazz Award 2017), James McLean (drums – winner of the 2017 Freedman Jazz Fellowship), and Mick Meagher (electric bass – too good to mess with competitions) on the same stage.
