Latest news from Geoff Page …
It’s just over two weeks to the first concert for 2017. It’s on Tues Feb 7 and features the Jess Green Quintet of which Jess writes: This concert is a special reunion between old friends, and a tribute to some of the influential composers and guitarists from early on in Jess’ career. Jess has been touring nationally and internationally in a number of musical settings, for many years. For this concert she focuses on her love of Jazz guitar and composition. She will feature the music of some of her ‘Gods’: Emily Remler, John Scofield, Bill Frisell, George Benson and Pat Metheny as well as her own compositions. The personnel includes Jess Green – guitar, Miroslav Bukovsky- trumpet, John Mackey – tenor sax, Eric Ajaye – bass, Col Hoorweg – drums.
The Gods is (are?) open for business and bookings (email@example.com) but if you want to join my tables up the front it’s not too late to dine with the 23 I’ve got already. Please note that the program will continue through the year at ANU despite the re-invention of the ANU Arts Centre (probably starting in June).
Admission: $22/$15 conc.
All the best and hope to see you there
PS If you’ve a taste for the avant garde check the Sound Out festival (ANU Drill Hall Gallery) which is on Sat/Sun Feb 4/5. Details from richard johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
