Sunday 14 April, Jamison

The “Roaring 20s” comes to ‘Jazz at Jamison’ in April with the return of renowned trumpeter Geoff Power and his Great Gatsby Orchestra.

This acclaimed 11-piece orchestra will delight and entertain you with its mix of hot jazz, dance music and novelty songs from the 1920s and 1930s and into the Swing Era.

You’ll hear music from Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Artie Shaw, Fats Waller, Lu Watters, to name a few, plus tributes to the great Australian bands and players such as Graeme Bell’s All Stars.

Geoff Power is one of this country’s most accomplished jazz musicians and his Great Gatsby Orchestra is a project dear to his heart with 5 members of his very talented family joining him in the line-up. Geoff Power’s Great Gatsby Orchestra has two critically acclaimed albums to their credit, Jubilee Stomp in 2016 and Shake That Thing in June 2021. Geoff models this much-in-demand band on the famous Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks orchestra based in New York, but as he notes, without a violin.

Don’t miss what will be an exceptional musical experience of a very high order!

Music from 1pm in the lounge. Bookings recommended.

Jazz at Jamison is presented in partnership with the Canberra Jazz Club.
