JAZZ GREATS WEEKEND AT MONASH

Monash Academy of Performing Arts (MAPA) presents a weekend filled with sizzling Jazz sounds from Australian icons, James Morrison, Kate Ceberano, Joe Camilleri and Paul Grabowsky backed by a line-up of stellar musicians on Saturday 25 March and Sunday 26 March at Robert Blackwood Hall.

Opening the JAZZ GREATS WEEKEND are the big brass sounds of Australia’s most celebrated trumpeter, James Morrison and his distinguished quintet, and 20 piece ensemble The James Mustafa Jazz Orchestra. 

Highlighting the program is MAPA’s newly commissioned composition from James Mustafa featuring his outstanding 20-piece Jazz Orchestra with James Morrison, acclaimed around the world for his virtuosity and musicianship, as featured soloist.  

The James Mustafa Jazz Orchestra is one of Australia’s most celebrated and renowned large ensembles comprised of some of the country's finest and most respected musicians.  Their debut album The Last Sanctuary, released under the Jazzhead record label has been a best seller and they have performed numerous sellout shows across Victoria.

PERFORMERS: James Morrison, The James Morrison Quintet and The James Mustafa Jazz Orchestra

In the second Jazz Greats concert, two of Australia’s most popular and celebrated contemporary vocalists, Kate Ceberano and Joe Camilleri, pair with six-time Aria award winner Paul Grabowsky and the Paul Grabowsky Quartet. 

Together they reimagine and transform the songbook of one of the 20th century’s greatest song-writers and poets - Bob Dylan.  The repertoire includes some of Dylan’s finest songs.

Performers:  Vocalists Kate Ceberano and Joe Camilleri, Paul Grabowsky (Musical Director and piano), Luke Andresen (drums), Rob Burke (saxophone), Jonathan Zion (double bass)
