Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes – 21 June 2014

Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes – 21 June 2014

A great night with Pippa at the Ringwood RSL on Saturday 21 June! It was a good-sized and enthusiastic audience (at least, judging by the whooping and hollering on our recording) for dinner and the show. The music gelled well and we even managed two unrehearsed requests. There were calls for ‘one more’ even after ‘just […]

The Opportunists – Castlemaine Jazz Festival 2014

Seeing a gap in the program, Kevin decided to fulfil an ambition: to play with Nicole Thorne. Andrew Eames and Simon Atkinson held the band together. With no time for rehearsal and some challenging music, this was musically risky but there were some very good musical moments and a lot of fun. Nicole Thorne (piano)Kevin […]

Kevin was originally scheduled to play in a guitar duo but illness interfered. Ann Craig (flute) stepped in and, on Saturday night, we were joined by Brian Paulusz  (who was available to play guitar at 5 minutes notice but for only 20 minutes), giving Frank O’Brien (bass) just enough time to travel from his previous set!
