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
getting off the wall with a thriller:
jazz musicians giving props to the king of pop :
featuring anna rizzo, tj eckleberg, pete harding, ella nielson, spike mason, and the incredible Adrien Andre : six Sydney based musicians and vocalists offering their own takes on wonderfully crafted and immortal songs that have shaped us all... Including songs such as Billie Jean, Thriller, Man in the Mirror, Human Nature... Plus a special group performance of "We are the World".
The musical lives of pianist Alister Spence and reedsman Paul Cutlan regularly cross in groups like the Australian Art Orchestra and Steve Morley's Squall. They have recorded together as a duo for the ABC and performed in Canberra and Sydney. Tonight they will combine their love of tradition with natural curiosity and playfulness as they explore a widely varying repertoire of originals and standards.
In the second set they welcome the wonderful vocalist Susan Gai Dowling for renditions of rare and beautiful songs.
Gareth Malone works hard when he's here, so you will have seen his name up all over town. this is it, he's got to get back to Zurich, but we're not in a hurry so if you're a long-time fan there will be time for some of what you've been missing.
The presence of Bowie or Mercury with the lightest touch, a poetry perfect for our candlelit vibe. Don't miss two whole sets of amazingly poised vocals with the beautifully textured support of Meadows, Hoorweg and Hauptmann.
She left to find her roots in Paris, built a gypsy following in France and England, then fell into the limelight. Euro-jazz-folk with a big smile, you'll hear her on a big festival stage one day and remember the intimate night you spent together in Glebe.
Charlie & the Maddox Factory
The cutest, quirkiest duet you've ever heard sing an Ella Fitzgerald song. The vocal and instrumental improvisations of Charlie (vocals) and John Maddox (one-man orchestra) are a pleasure to watch - beautiful, funny, and unpredictable.
bio type thingy
Gareth J Malone's warm, melodic songs, backed by the subtle, richly arranged vocals and instruments of Nick Hoorweg (bass), James Hauptmann (drums) and Charlie Meadows (guitar, The Shakers).
The first in our 2009 duets series.
Both winners of international awards (Kristin won the vocal competition at Montreaux in 2006), both widely loved, respected, and recorded, Kristin and James are launching an album perfect for the cafechurch space - voice and guitar and nothing else.
In 2003 Spike Mason once again curated a huge series of concerts mostly jazz and world music with some amazing vocalists. It would be six more years before any of us found the energy to organise a series of this standard, running for this long.
