Presented by Jane Morris and Charlie McCarthy.
The Jane Morris Quintet is toe-tapping swing,
breakneck gypsy classics, wistful Parisian ballads
and re-worked jazz standards
in a vibrant and engaging mix of acoustic music,
all performed with the dazzling virtuosity
and passion that is intrinsic
to the fun of Gypsy Swing Jazz.
Formed in mid 2018, the Jane Morris Quintet has now established a reputation as one of Tasmania’s premier Gypsy Swing Jazz groups. Fronted by vocalist Jane Morris (also on flute) and featuring Felicity Lovett and Harry Edwards (guitars), Charlie McCarthy (violin) and Isaac Gee (double bass).
The Jane Morris Quintet recently recorded an album of Hot Club style standards along with some original compositions and this album will be available to purchase at the performance.
Featuring music from composers such as Django Reinhardt, Edith Piaf, Duke Ellington and George Gershwin (to name only a few) Jane Morris Quintet presents an evening of familiar classics with an innovative twist.
