A great jazz reunion will take place at Diana Allen’s next Jazz Australia soiree at the Uniting Church in Queenscliff on Sunday November 11th when the celebrated jazz violinist George Washingmachine will reunite with his long time musical collaborator, the great jazz guitarist Ian Date. These two popular musicians had a high profile in partnership at jazz festivals throughout Australia, Europe and Asia for many years, and made regular appearances on the Ray Martin Show. Following Ian’s migration to Ireland in 2002, this regular collaboration came to an end. Since then the two musicians meet rarely and this will be one of those joyous occasions.
On November 11th when George flies from Sydney to join Ian Date and his brother Nigel on second guitar, along with the great Melbourne bassist Howard Cairns at Queenscliff, it will be a ‘hot night in the old town tonight’! There will be plenty of hot gypsy music in the Django Reinhardt/ Stephan Grappelli style a la the famous Quintet of the Hot Club of France, along with a little western swing and world music plus their great classic jazz repertoire. Their performances are always humorous and entertaining.
Don’t miss this last Jazz Australia event for 2012 which will take place at 5.30pm for 6pm at the Uniting Church on 11.11.12. Tickets are $50 each which includes finger food all evening. Drinks at below bar prices will be available and a great night will be had by all! Bookings Diana Allen, Jazz Australia: 5258 3936
