WILL SARGISSON - TRIBUTE TO FATS WALLER & COUNT BASIE
Date Sunday 28th August
Tickets $20 (+bf)
NZ Musician magazine called his debut album: "An inspired and excellent release."
Australian Rhythms magazine said: "This is a young performer with style and chops to spare."
Sydney Morning Herald labelled his piano technique "formidable."
After a sell-out show last year, Wil is returning to the Jazz Sessions with his solo piano show.
Wil’s talent has taken him around the world and has seen him play with international acts that include ‘The Coasters’ and ‘The Platters’, perform at dozens of Jazz Festivals over Australia, USA and New Zealand, feature on about 2 dozen albums from Jazz trios to Blues quartets to Funk ensembles and now has him playing for internationally -renowned Australian Jazz band, ‘Galapagos Duck’. Being one of the few pianists well-versed in Boogie Woogie, Harlem Stride and New Orleans Rhythm & Blues, he is a force to be reckoned with. Showcasing his interest and talents in these styles, Wil is bringing his ‘Fats Waller and Count Basie show’ to The Bison Bar, Nambour. This will be an amazing concert of the jubilant music of the 1920’s and 1930’s when the Boogie Woogie and Stride players were king!
