We're embracing the daylight! - sort of. There seemed to be a lack of daytime gigs for people to enjoy in Brunswick so we thought we'd fix that by bringing those shows that normally grace our evenings into the early afternoon.
From 3pm every Saurday, the best Melbourne's jazz scene has to offer!
Aether\Or is a long overdue union of kindred musical spirits. This debut concert at the Jazzlab has offered the opportunity for a quartet of unique voices to gather together for the first time and explore a rich and diverse world of musical possibilities.
Polish born, Melbourne-based; Katarzyna is a pianist, composer, arranger, producer and band leader. Inspired by Andrea Keller’s Wave Rider and Linda Oh’s Aventurine she formed her first major group the Katarzyna Wiktorski Octet in 2019. Fusing an unconventional string quartet with a piano-sax jazz quartet, her music is influenced by classical, jazz, film music and contemporary sensibilities.
This show will include two sets of original music including new arrangements and compositions.
Jackie Bornstein is one of Melbourne’s most captivating singers, known for her rich tones and ability to get to the heart of a tune. Jackie’s performances explore music from across the globe, sharing universal stories from near and far.
Joining Jackie on stage will be the exciting guitarist James Sherlock (Katie Noonan, James Taylor, Cyrille Aimee), the masterful bassist Ben Hanlon (Hugh Blanes, Bopstretch, MSO) and the exuberant Hugh Harvey on drums (The Meltdown, Paper Planes, Stock).
