‘Women do Jazz’: Sandy Evans and Andrea Keller Oct 20 at Four Winds

Zephyrs Jazz presents ‘Women do Jazz’: Sandy Evans and Andrea Keller

This October the annual Zephyrs Jazz concert presents two outstanding musicians, saxophonist Sandy Evans and pianist Andrea Keller.

Amongst Australia’s finest jazz artists, Sandy Evans from Sydney and Melbourne-based Andrea Keller have achieved national and international recognition for their excellence as performers, composers and leaders.

They are important tertiary educators, pioneering women in jazz and mentors for younger female jazz musicians. Sandy has been described as ‘one of the best contemporary jazz composers/musicians anywhere’. She is a foundational figure in Australian jazz, leading a number of ground-breaking bands since the early 1980s and for many years exploring Indian classical music from her jazz perspective.

Andrea has established and composed for a diverse range of influential ensembles, drawing on a deep love for, and knowledge of classical music. Her jazz is ‘a powerful blend of European lyricism with space and improvisation.’ Sandy will perform with her Trio and Indian tabla virtuoso Bobby Singh.Andrea will perform with her Trio. They will also play together as a duo. Sandy and Andrea are admirers of each other’s music and while playing very different styles of jazz, they complement each other as composers and performers.

Again Zephyrs, in partnership with Four Winds, brings the highest quality of jazz musicianship to the far south coast, so come and celebrate women and jazz.
