Rick Correnza with Jazz Notes: ‘Charade’

Here’s a fantastic rendition of the 1963 Henry Mancini song, Charade, by Rick Correnza with Jazz Notes, recorded live at SAE Studios. We just love the energy in this performance, don’t you?

Keep an eye on the Jazz Notes Facebook page for more of these performances: we will be releasing more videos over the coming days.

Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes at the Australian Jazz Convention 2018

The Miners’ Tavern is nicely set up with a stage and lighting but the 10am start was somewhat challenging. For the evening set in the George Hotel, we had people managing the sound and the result was very pleasing to the large audience and us. You can watch and listen to ‘When Sunny Gets Blue’.

Rick Correnza and Jazz Notes return to Dizzy’s

Rick Correnza fronted Jazz Notes at Dizzy’s in August and September.

With Oliver mixing, sound in the room was very good.

Thanks to Marion Blazé for taking photos and video on both occasions.

Dizzy’s has closed at its location above Bohème restaurant and will be reopening elsewhere in 2019 – we look forward to playing there.

Thanks to Niamh for having us at Dizzy’s in 2018.

With Pippa Wilson at the Victorian Jazz Club

We were delighted to be invited to back Pippa Wilson at the Victorian Jazz Club.

Pippa, Ann and Kevin were reunited with Ron Sandilands (drums). At the last minute, we learned that our bass player was unwell so we were very pleased to meet the safe hands of Geoff Woods.
