Zephyrs Jazz presents: Oct 28th


Local jazz musicians ‘Bringing their music back home’ On Sunday 28 October, Zephyrs will present Carl Morgan, Alex Stuart and Kade Brown at the Windsong Pavilion, Barragga Bay, in partnership with Four Winds. Once a year the local jazz club Zephyrs Jazz presents an outstanding group of jazz musicians in concert. This October the concert features three award-winning musicians, Carl Morgan, Alex Stuart and Kade Brown, each inspired by their strong connections to our region. But there will also be an international flavour, with Alex’s French musicians playing in the jam session that concludes this ‘mini-festival’ event. Zephyrs hopes to satisfy the weldedon jazz lovers but also to introduce jazz to people, perhaps for the first time. So, what is jazz? It’s the great twentieth century Afro-American musical art form, now played increasingly by musicians all over the world, adding their own musical culture to the mix. Perhaps the most distinctive characteristic of jazz is improvisation, where individual players will develop a song’s core tune by playing original variations, playing with themes, timing and chords, stimulating each other to new heights. It’s why, after appreciating a good piece of improvisation, audiences break out in applause in the middle of a song. So anything can happen, especially when the jam session gets going. Come along and see.


Carl (guitar) grew up in Central Tilba and is based in Sydney. He released his debut album, ‘Stone’, in 2012, won the National Jazz Award, and is currently a finalist for the 2018 Freedman Music Fellowship. Alex (guitar) has roots in Barragga Bay. He moved to Paris in 2005 and won the Jazz à Juan Festival’s ‘Révélations Prize’ in 2011. He will launch his critically acclaimed new album, ‘Aftermath’, at the Zephyrs event. Kade (piano) comes from Candelo and now leads a quintet with top Melbourne musicians. He has produced two albums and will soon release his new multi-awardwinning suite, ‘Frictions’.
