This is it. The End. Something about not going gently but raging. Well, we certainly know something about how to put on a jazz party,
and The Last Hurrah will be no exception!
Sixty Jazz Club is going out with a bang, no whimpers in sight. We have a stellar, dreamy lineup of the crème de la crème, a bar bursting with goodness, and the familiar faces that have helped turn Sixty Jazz Club into an internationally recognised entity.
Enamoured by the romance and sophistication of the golden age of song, vocalist Tamara Kuldin has been captivating audiences from Melbourne to Europe and New York with her playful, sultry and heartfelt interpretation of songs from The Great American Songbook, European classics to lesser known vintage jazz & blues gems.
A lover of storytelling through song, Tamara is inspired by female vocalists such as Doris Day, Peggy Lee, Cassandra Wilson, Sarah Vaughan and Joni Mitchell. Her vivacity and vocal prowess has impressed some of the finest Australian and international jazz musicians around. She’s been invited to sing with the finest jazz big bands as well as record with Wycliffe Gordon.
Melbourne singer-songwriter Jacqueline Gawler is a modern musician drawing deeply from the world around her. Her original songs are sophisticated and earthy, saturated with the sounds of her vast experience as a world citizen musician: rich jazz harmony and Brazilian rhythm, playful poetry and rock n’ roll persuasion, folky wisdom and refined craft. Jacqueline’s voice is warm and agile, her energy abundant and her music irresistible.
