EVENT DETAILS

*****”A thrilling journey” Pete Churchill (UK)
*****”A killer line-up” Adrian Cunningham (NY)

Wild Silk Strings Project has grown out of a long-standing musical collaboration between Australian jazz singer/lyricist Ingrid James and Canadian-born, Australian-based pianist/composer/arranger Louise Denson. This 9-piece ensemble is proud to launch their new CD “Colours Of Your Love” tonight. They will present a rich program of songs from around the world, drawing from folk, jazz, Brazilian, pop and classical repertoire.

“From the opening reworking of Eric Satie’s ‘Gnossienne No.1’ through to the Brazilian composer Geraldo Vandré’s ‘Tristeza De Amar’ – and then onwards to Carole King’s ‘It’s too Late’, Supertramp’s ‘Logical Song’ and Gordon Lightfoot’s ‘If you can read my mind’ – the listener is taken on a thrilling journey through an eclectic repertoire with a vast emotional landscape. The boldness and the variety of the song choices on this album means that the ‘sound-world’ has to be strong enough to bind it all together… and it certainly is. The personality of the writing and arranging behind this album makes sure of this and shines through on every track”.Pete Churchill, Professor Jazz Composition, Royal Academy of Music, London – singer/pianist/conductor

“It’s a beautiful mix of exotic grooves and instrumentation with a killer line-up of musicality”. Adrian Cunningham (Sydney multi-instrumentalist/bandleader based in NY)

“Ingrid James is a true musician. Her voice and musical choices on The AAA Wild Strings Project are exquisite.” (Denise Donatelli, USA multi-GRAMMY nominated jazz vocalist)

“Ever since 1961, when Stan Getz recorded the acclaimed album Focus with a string quintet, it’s been more than just acceptable to make superb music by combining the talents of jazz musicians and a few ‘legit’ players. Now the bar has been raised with the welcome addition of one of the jazz world’s most phenomenally gifted voices in Ingrid James, and the writing and pianistic talents of the ever-creative Louise Denson”. Steve Robertson – Long-time jazz writer and host of Monday Night Jazz On Fleurieu FM in South Australia.

We would like to acknowledge the financial assistance provided by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and Griffith University.

“For a big band experience that engages the ears and the mind, it’s hard to go past the BCJO for the exciting, contemporary big band sound”

BCJO is a 19 piece big band featuring Ingrid James on vocals and Pablo Matus (Chile) on percussion. They perform modern big band jazz music and is a showcase for established and emerging Brisbane jazz musicians.

BCJO performs a wide range of modern big band music including latin, funk, swing and gospel. The repertoire focuses on jazz music from the last 20 years, with charts from composers such as Jaco Pastorius, Michel Camilo and Gordon Goodwin.

Influences
Although swing music was the original big band sound, modern groups play a wide range of styles. In the repertoire of BCJO, we have charts from the big bands of Maynard Ferguson, Buddy Rich and Woody Herman as well as more recent bands such as Gordon Goodwin, Bob Mintzer and even the Phil Collins Big Band. Local composers Tim Davies, Brad Esbensen, Louise Denson have also contributed charts and vocalist Ingrid James brings her unique arrangements from Los Angeles recordings with San Gabriel 7 (arranger Dave Cushman). In a concert, you will hear funk, latin, gospel, rock in addition to swing and blues. Improvisation is a key component of jazz and BCJO is fortunate to showcase several major Brisbane jazz musicians.

 

Doors open at 6.30pm. Show starts at 8.00pm.
