American Jazz Songbook with Victoria Newton and Jamie Oehlers

Thursday 05 September 7.00pm

Multi award winning artists, vocalist Victoria Newton and saxophonist Jamie Oehlers, unite with Perth’s finest for this exciting concert of new arrangements from the American Jazz Songbook.

Victoria Newton: This effervescent Australian vocalist has delighted audiences worldwide with her unique combination of energy, spontaneity and musicianship. Her rich, sensual voice and powerful stage presence are summed up by Steve Rubie (owner of London’s 606 Club) when he describes her as having “a fabulous strong clear voice with a great sense of time and an even greater sense of fun!” Victoria began her musical career in Perth, Western Australia where she studied classical music and jazz. After majoring in clarinet performance at the University of Western Australia, she went on to study jazz vocals at the Conservatorium, becoming vocalist with The Western Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra and supporting international artists such as Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick, Ray Brown and James Moody. In 1990 she relocated to London and rapidly established a name for herself on the jazz and Latin scene, collaborating with Acid-Jazz recording artist Ronny Jordan and supporting Terence Blanchard at the Jazz with her own quartet. She also appeared at the Ealing Jazz Festival, The Soho Jazz Festival and the Ingolstadt International Jazz Festival in Germany as well as at London venues Pizza Express Dean Street, The 606 Club and Pizza on the Park. Victoria’s voice has also featured on many club anthems and it was this which changed the direction of her career in the mid-90’s. As the lead singer of pop-dance group Strike, she had a UK no. 4 hit and global success with ‘U Sure Do’, followed by a further four UK top 40 hits and a critically acclaimed album. Victoria’s vocals on the Strike album ‘I Saw the Future’ have been described as “outstanding throughout” (Dream Magazine)   and  her  live  performances “simply stunning”, with  “staggering vocals” (M8 magazine). In recent years Victoria has re-ignited her passion for jazz and Brazilian music and due to popular demand has recorded her first solo jazz album. ‘The Song is You’ reflects a wealth of musical influences, brought together in a fresh and contemporary way; from swinging standards to sensual bossa novas, from dreamy ballads to drum and bass infused interpretations. There are a couple of catchy originals included too!

Jamie Oehlers: Australian jazz saxophonist, Jamie Oehlers, has been one of the country’s most successful international jazz exports for the past two decades. His no holds barred approach to jazz performance sees him performing regularly with the world’s most well known jazz artists at clubs and festivals all around the world.

“Tenor saxophonist Jamie Oehlers speaks that kind of language; a beautiful language, but with a very unique accent and logic…Oehlers’ musical language is very special” –Billy Kerr, International Saxophone Journal

“He seemed to be his own accompanying trio, dazzling was the alteration between his melodic lines and the phrases that built up the supporting harmonies”- Alyn Shipton, BBC Jazz presenter
