CITA has been working hard building on our vibrant Latin/jazz repertoire during 2020 and 2021.
At the Inverloch Jazz Festival in 2020, we gladly accepted an opportunity to pop up in the outdoor tent and entertain the passing crowds. We were happy that so many passers-by stopped and stayed.
In the audience were some of the committee from the Phillip Island Jazz Club and weren’t we excited when they told us they loved it! And asked if we’d be interested in performing at their club. Of course, it took Ann all of 3 seconds to say yes! COVID got in the way of our 2020 appearance but we’re heading there on Sunday 21st March.
Although sax and, especially, flute feature in the band, each instrument plays a vital role in the band so that it functions more like a little big band with a wide spectrum of tone colours overlying the strong rhythm section.
In addition to our Latin/jazz music, we’ll be playing adaptations of standards and a couple of gentle songs from the 1930s.
Our line-up comprises Ann Craig (flute/tambourine/shaker), Ashley Thomas (sax/clarinet), Kevin Blazé (guitar), Malcolm Hornby (piano), Frank Morgan (bass) & Simon Atkinson (drums).
You can see more of our band at www.jazznotes.net.au/ or check our Facebook page ‘Jazz Notes’.
We’d love to see some of our Melbourne friends join us on the island.
