Please join Adelaide University's Big Band 1 (directed by Dusty Cox) and the Generations in Jazz Academy Big Band (directed by Graeme Lyall) at the Gov, Wednesday, 29 August.
Big Band 1 is the first Australian University ensemble to be awarded an 'Outstanding Performance' award in 2009 by 'DownBeat' (jazz) magazine's international 'Student Music Awards'. This ensemble has a long tradition of excellent musicianship and is better than ever this year.
The Generations in Jazz Academy Big Band is led by Australian Jazz legend Graeme Lyall, a superb saxophonist and composer who is the Director of the Generations in Jazz Academy in Mt. Gambier, the 'brainchild' of multi-instrumentalist and jazz icon James Morrison.
Please join these outstanding student musicians for an evening of incredible big band charts, including works by Graeme Lyall, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Lennie Niehaus and more!
