John McAll is an Australian pianist, composer, arranger and producer, with experience ranging from jazz, pop, blues, rock contemporary classical, afrobeat and theatre.

McAll launched his debut recording as band leader and composer in June 2009 with Black Money on independent label Audacity Media. The band performed at the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz in October that year, and the album was rated in the top albums of the year by Herald-Sun jazz reviewer Roger Mitchell in December.

As a founding member of the David Chesworth Ensemble, McAll has performed internationally in New York City, Slovenia, extensively through the UK, South Africa and Paris, France. He regularly tours Australia and Europe with The Black Sorrows; appears at music festivals with the Public Opinion Afro Orchestra; performs and writes for Eugene Hamilton and the Money; and performs live jazz regularly in Melbourne with Brian Abrahams’ District 6, the B# Big Band, Nichaud Fitzgibbon, Alyce Platt, Rebecca Barnard, and Jane Clifton.

He has worked with Gregory Porter, Wycliffe Gordon, Ross Wilson, David Campbell, Debra Byrne, Renee Geyer, Nina Ferro, Ruby Carter and Vince Jones,as well as playing international concert stages with The David Chesworth Ensemble, Vika Bull and The Black Sorrows. For a time he was part of 1980s pop group I’m Talking.

In August 2012 John McAll joined forces with Joe Camilleri to create a big band called The Voodoo Sheiks. He subsequently became keyboardist for Camilleri’s band The Black Sorrows.

This new iteration of his band unites him with some familiar faces and a younger generation of rising stars, and for this performance special guest vocalist Nichaud Fitzgibbon will be joining him.

Nichaud is recognised as Australia’s premier jazz stylist; her natural charisma and feisty elegance brings sophistication to performances offering a repertoire of popular jazz standards from the Great American Songbook. Her sound is sultry and warm and she always leaves you wanting more from her selection of swing and grooves to bossa and blues. She performs regularly with her band at various Melbourne venues and festivals around the country and is in demand for corporate events and major concerts.
