Carol’s singing for our wildlife

The devastating Black Summer bushfires of January 2020 saw the deaths of over 30 people. With the burning of almost 200,000 square kilometres came vast destruction of forests, habitats and animals.

Carol McCarthy wanted to hold a fund-raiser for the injured wildlife that were being cared for at Melbourne’s zoos. She asked Jazz Notes to back her and also invited John and Mike to join us.

It was a great night with Carol providing great entertainment at the Montmorency-Eltham RSL. We loved the dancers!

Jazz Notes at The Treble Clef Jazz Lounge

The bucolic setting is unusual for a jazz venue, but there we were on Sunday 28 May, at The Treble Clef Jazz Lounge in Chirnside Park.

It was a real treat to have three singers: Delia Gawthorne, Jan Blake and Luella McCormack (making her debut). Their three very different voices were backed by Ann Craig (flute), Kevin Blazé (guitar), Andrew Eames (bass), Rob Mercer (drums) and enthusiastically received by the large audience (standing-room only!).
