Kinetic Jazz Festival Coverage (article / festival)

Very close to my home, the amazing Kinetic Jazz festival is taking place, and I am lucky enough to be able to pop in and give a bit of festival coverage on this wonderful event.

The purpose of this wonderful event is to give some of Australia’s best Jazz musicians the chance to perform in a recital setting rather than in the sultry dark nightclubs they’re used to working in.  Performances are held at St Lukes Hall, 11 Stanmore Road Enmore, in either the church there, or the adjoining hall. The cathedral atmosphere impacts heavily on the artists and their ability to work with their sounds. It’s an exciting opportunity to taste some of the best jazz going around.  This years lineup includes names such as Matt McMahon, Waldo Fabian and Kaoru Watanabe.

Stay tuned for my take on last night – the first night I attended. I hope to be able to be there for tonight as well as for tomorrow night (Sunday.)

If you’re lucky enough to be in Sydney at the moment, make sure you get there.
