Joe Chindamo Trio & Alma Zygier
Sunday 5 December, 7:00PM
Malvern Town Hall
Joe Chindamo scarcely needs an introduction. The Australian virtuoso pianist is a favourite among both jazz and classical music fans and is routinely described as one of the best jazz pianists in the world, earning broad acclaim and international praise as a composer for his concertos, chamber music and film soundtracks. He is joined by jazz heavy hitters Ben Hanlon (bass) and Danny Fischer (drums) in a powerhouse trio that make this an unmissable festival performance.
Vocalist Alma Zygier has always been fascinated by the pre-war era of jazz, bringing an emotional maturity to her performances that transports you to times of the past. Her vocals are remarkable, and expressive – allowing the music and its raw emotion to take over.
Inspired by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and more, Zygier will bring her repertoire of American Songbook classics into the 21st century in a perfect marriage of nostalgia and youthful exuberance.
