Description:

Vince Jones has set the benchmark for Australian Jazz artists since his emergence in the jazz clubs of Melbourne in the late 70s and early 80s. His 20 album, international career has never hesitated in its musical evolution – a career played in the moment. He is a national treasure whose music transcends musical boundaries. He is that rare genre-defying artist – even jazz – in Vince’s case, who creates music without borders. From Iris DeMent’s folk “Our Town” to his original piano heavy, new age “Wonderworld”, he comments, sometimes uncomfortably, about the world we live in from an unashamedly idealistic perspective. His intuitive readings of the Great American Songbook are sensitively true to composer and artist. He is also a wonderful trumpet player. Over time, his style has developed a distinctive reserve and subtlety. He plays a little less and draws a good deal more from it than he did in early days. A brief, thoughtful solo from Vince is worth a hundred notes played with less discretion. Particular about the musical company he keeps, he’s enjoyed playing with the best musicians the country has to offer. He continues to do so and he’ll be staying with tradition on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th of July with Matt McMahon (piano), Brett Hirst (bass) and Perth’s own Ben Vanderwal (drums).
