i've seen them playing around the hyde park fountain in the wee hours, busking on king street in the mornings, and opening a music festival. They are Charlotte Craib (vocals) and John Maddox (Acoustic Bass, Kazoo, Percussion) - a very modern interpretation of depression instrumentation. Maddox is a long-time member of Nadya's 101 Candles Orchestra, and is a legend on the Jazz / world music scene; Charlotte brings amazingly clever insights into standards from Ella Fitzgerald to Horace Silver and original songs, not always finished.
Long-time collaborator of senor Maddox and one of the people responsible for all of the music we present, Barney presents original compositions (never the same way twice) and the songs of Vince Jones and Chet Baker
Barney, an absolute rock of the Sydney jazz scene; a rock held aloft by Steve Elphick; forming a contraption propelled by Dave Hibbard. Mostly standards, a few new pieces; intimate improvisations for an intimate room.
The Gumnut Memorial Band:
Barney Wakeford and Johnny Maddox
Two intuitive improvisers who have been playing together for a decade. Piano, double bass, kazoo, and the unexpected.
everybody's favourite gypsy,
the man who never stops playing,
the face behind the bass,
