A Jazzamanca 2021 Festival Event. Presented by Salamanca Arts Centre.
Four of Tasmania’s leading contemporary Jazz musicians team up to pay tribute to The Modern Jazz Quartet; one of the most enduring and versatile Jazz acts of the 20th century.
The Hobart Jazz Quartet (HJQ) combines the talents of Kelly Ottaway (vibraphone), Mat Boden (piano), Hamish Houston (bass) – replacing Nick Haywood on this occasion – and drummer Ted Vining. The HJQ will perform the music of John Lewis and his Modern Jazz Quartet (pictured below), a group which formed in the U.S in 1952 and performed over a 40-year span, playing tunes influenced by classical music, cool Jazz, blues and be-bop.
