Emma Gilmartin has gained a reputation as one of Australia’s most talented jazz vocalists. Her voice is undeniably beautiful with “a crystalline purity of vibrato-less tone and flawless pitch” (Leon Gettler, The Age Green Guide). Her treatment of jazz standards is undeniably unique, both enchanting and defiant, and has the ability to both restore and recast the work in a new light.
Dr Tony Gould has made an outstanding contribution to Australian music over the course of a career spanning more than 50 years. As an extraordinary pianist, composer and pioneering music educator, Gould has brought a unique voice to Australian jazz, improvisational and classical music through his extensive involvement in both performance and music education.
Joining them will be bassist Tom Lee, Danny Farrugia on drums and trumpeter Gianni Marinucci.
Come and enjoy these musical friends reinvent the standards and take an adventure into new works…
‘There is a lightness of being in the voice … a voice [that] must be listened to as well as heard.’ Michael Foster, Canberra Times
“Marinucci is a highly-gifted and marvelously restrained player possessing a luscious, seductive sound that’s filled with both muscular strength and emotional fragility. His melodic and improvisational approach is economical with a superb (and swinging, even at slower tempos) sense of note-placement. This is a player whose horn indeed tells tales.” Nick Mondello ,’All About Jazz”
