Enjoy beautiful classics and curios from The Great American Songbook as they weave a magic web of music and romance; a must see for lovers of jazz music. "A stage presence only matched by the clarity of her voice.." James Morrison (AU)
// Two sets of music from 8:00pm (Doors from 6:30pm)
Hetty Kate is often lauded for what she 'doesn't do' as a jazz singer, and it's this classic and clear style that led Mal Stanley from ABC's Jazztrack to invite her to record an album of treasures from Peggy Lee, June Christy and Julie London in 2013. Since then she has toured around the world, performing in Asia, North and South America and Europe and sung with eight symphony orchestras, including the Sydney Symphony at the Sydney Opera House.
Outstanding guitarist James Sherlock is one of Australia's most in-demand sidemen and a revered band leader in his own right. With a lyrical and expressive style, his playing brings to mind the beauty of Grant Green; and he is a wonderful accompanist - called on to tour Australia with Sheila Jordan, Cyrille Aimee, Kristin Berardi and more.
