Delta Jazz Band

1-4pm Sunday 11 November, Jamison

Sunday afternoon Jazz at Jamison – enjoy three hours of free live jazz from 1pm in the lounge, presented by Canberra Jazz Club.

Our popular Jazz at Jamison sessions conclude for the year with banjoist Chris Gildersleeve and his Delta Jazz Band.

Hailing from Sydney, this successful traditional jazz band has been together for some twenty years and it is one of only a handful of bands to hold down a long term residency, currently playing twice-monthly at Sydney’s Lane Cove Bowling Club.

This six piece band of seasoned professionals focusses on swinging New Orleans revival jazz, in other words, the music that evolved from the melting pot of music genres that was New Orleans jazz in the 1920s and 1930s.

Joining Chris will be Wally Temple, reeds; David Cant, cornet/trombone; Gary Kohrmann, double bass; Beverley Baychek, vocals; and special guest Colin Beale, reeds.

This will be a great afternoon of swinging early traditional jazz, made all the more authentic by the sultry vocals of gospel singer Bev Baychek.
