PIJF Jazz Jam: led by The Ricki Malet Trio
Friday 05 November 10.30pm
All jazz musicians in Perth are invited down to The Ellington to jump on stage and have a jam, as has been the tradition since the Perth International Jazz Festival began. We encourage you to come on down and enjoy yourself!
Musicians bringing in their instrument (or vocalists coming to sing) enter free of charge. If purchasing a free Jam Musician Ticket, please ensure you bring your instrument or indicate that you are a vocalist coming to jam for our door person to check.
All other guests $20 at the door. If you are not coming to jam and just coming to watch, please do support us and our musicians by purchasing a ticket.
Tonight’s jam session will be led by The Ricki Malet Trio.
The Ricki Malet Trio have been playing together for over a year now and draw upon all the musical influences and experiences that has made Ricki the musician he is today. He has performed all over Perth for the last 20 years with various bands and toured extensively around Australia, also performing in Europe, USA and Japan. You can expect to hear elements of modern jazz, hard bop, blues, free jazz and traditional jazz come together with energy, groove and group interaction. Featuring Ricki Malet on trumpet, Alistair Peel on bass and Bronton Ainsworth on drums, they will be unleashing music that is new, arranged & possibly deranged. Come join in the late Jam session with them to make the opening night of the festival a memorable one!
