James Flynn - Jazz on the Rocks
Wednesday 14 August 7.00pm
James Flynn wears many hats: jazz singer, composer, actor & writer to name a few; but put him in a room with an audience and one word comes to mind, ‘Entertainer’.
His silky smooth vocals, swinging style and quick wit, have had him engaging audiences around the globe for almost three decades.
With a repertoire that focusses on the Great American Songbook, he takes a fresh approach with clever arrangements and his own inimitable touch. Add a sprinkling of original compositions and his infectious impromptu humour and you have all the ingredients of a great night out.
Flynn has had a colourful career to date, from supporting the late great Ray Charles in Australia, to performing with sax legend Dave Koz in the USA. Along with countless stage and festival performances, Flynn has recorded 8 CD, s and written and produced dozens of productions for theatre.
His first original album, due to be released later this year, will feature among others Mark Fitzgibbon on Piano & Dale Barlow on sax.
Tonight James is joined by saxophonist Simon Styles who’ll lead a four piece ensemble consisting of the cream of Perth’s jazz musicians.
