WIL SARGISON - THE JAZZ SESSIONS
Date Sunday 27th September
Playing professionally since he was 13, Wil Sargisson is one of the few pianists well-versed in Boogie Woogie, Harlem Stride and New Orleans Rhythm & Blues piano styles. Growing up listening to James Booker, Professor Longhair, Dr John, Fats Waller and many great Boogie Woogie and Stride pianists , critics are amazed at his dexterity and technique.
“This is a young performer with style and chops to spare” – Rhythms Magazine.
“His piano technique is formidable” – Sydney Morning Herald.
From a classical piece right through to modern jazz & blues, Wil makes the piano dance! Wil’s playing has featured on about 2 dozen albums, he has performed at dozens of jazz festivals all over Australia and New Zealandand currently plays with Australian jazz royalty ‘Galapagos Duck’.
Wil is bringing his ‘Fats Waller and Count Basie’ show to The Bison Bar, Nambour. Joined by guest vocalist Robyn Brown, Wil will be taking us back to the jubilant music of the 1920’s and 1930’s when the Boogie Woogie and Stride players were king!
