From 3pm every Saurday, the best Melbourne's jazz scene has to offer!
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.

The Angela Davis trio featuring pianist Tony Gould and bassist Sam Anning will meet to perform material from their Aria Nominated ABC release "Little Did They Know". The album showcases some of Angela's own tunes as well as classic standards and compositions originally penned by Bill Frisell and Charlie Haden.

With a passion for the unorthodox and a knack for cultivating unique ensemble identities, saxophonist, improviser and composer Andrew Saragossi has established himself across several and varied creative outlets (MEATSHELL, Milton Man Gogh, AHA Trio) as a chameleon with a wind instrument - not bound by genre or personal taste, but by a relentless search for deeper musical meaning.
For his debut performance as a bandleader in his new hometown of Melbourne, Saragossi will be debuting music for a new quartet featuring some of the brightest young talent in Melbourne, most of whom happen to share his place of residence.
