ROBYN BROWN ALBUM LAUNCH - THE JAZZ SESSIONS
Date Sunday 26th February
Brown “suffuses the blues with elegance and jazz with attitude.”Rhythms Magazine
A highly-respected singer in the Queensland jazz scene Robyn Brown has an extensive repertoire that covers early blues, swing standards, Latin, bebop, soul jazz and self-penned originals, her particular passion is the songs of the early jazz/blues singers. “I love that I can sing a song that was written in 1914, but the heart and the passion of the song is still relevant today. It’s great to present my own interpretation of the song in a way that connects with the audience, and the audience loves it!” Infusing the blues with elegance and jazz with attitude, Robyn’s fine-grained tones imbue her music with relaxed phrasing, poise, confidence and a subtle sense of swing. Now Robyn is releasing her second album of vintage jazz and blues songs - accompanied by Queensland’s finest jazz instrumentalists.
Robyn is joined by Marnix van Bruggen on grand piano, Peter Walters on double-bass and Jason Bray on drums who all have extensive experience working with many jazz-greats and touring through Australia and Europe. Musically brilliant, enticingly moody, the quartet will perform material from early blues artists, Blind Willie Johnson and Lil' Green right through to Ella Fitzgerald and Eric Clapton. This concert in an intimate setting will be an afternoon of quality jazz. Don't miss it!
