The Ellington's 9th Birthday - Music by and for Graham Wood

Friday 15 September 7.00pm

We are overjoyed to be celebrating The Ellington Jazz Club’s 9th Birthday, and how better to celebrate than with the music of our co-founder and owner, and one of Perth’s greatest musical talents, who we very sadly lost last year – Graham Wood. Graham was also the Director and Founder of the Perth International Jazz Festival, Associate Professor at WAAPA and to top it all off  – a superbly gifted and inspiring pianist and composer. His energy and zeal knew no bounds and his fierce passion was obvious not only through everything he played but everything he ever did.

To celebrate The Ellington’s 9th birthday, a bunch of his mates are getting together to perform a range of compositions from his 5 recorded works, alongside original pieces inspired by Graham, and stories connected to him. Come ring in The Ellington’s 9th birthday with the music of the man who has provided so much opportunity and support to a musical community that he really believed in.

Line up:

Jamie Oehlers - Tenor and Soprano Saxophone
Carl Mackey – Alto Saxophone
Simon Jeans – Guitar
Tom O’Halloran – Piano
Pete Jeavons – Double Bass
Ben Vanderwal – Drums
