Wednesday Jazz, Episode 6
The final online episode of this series of 6 Wednesday Jazz shows. The real gigs are back on, albeit for an intimate number of guests to adhere to social distancing, so in this last show we enjoy the playing of Sam Lemann, Steve Grant, James Clark and Juliarna, and we have a little reminisce of all the good times of the series. A souvenir CD, drawn from the songs in the series, can be ordered in the first 2 weeks of July and will be delivered for the end of July. And Richard M wins the raffle!
"Locked Down & Loaded" CD
Locked Down & Loaded is a collection of songs drawn from the online episodes of 'Wednesday Jazz'. These episodes were created with the locals of a regular gig at Wine O'Clock Wine Bar in mind and continued through the time that gigs were off (we are talking the year of Corona). This disc is a delightful mix of favourite standards and lesser known gems. Sound was captured by the musicians with the recording gear they had in their lounge at the time, sent across the internet as WAVs or Aiff files, and mixed and mastered by James Clark. Lucky for us James Clark also plays bass and recorded himself and Juliarna, and Steve Grant, Sam Lemann and Mat Jodrell are all skillful sound techies in their own rights. Hope you enjoy.

Ooo la la! French Songs by Juliarna
J'ai Deux Amours, C'est si Bon, Ne Me Quitte Pas, Que Reste-t-il, and La Vie en Rose. Jules is a Melbourne based singer with a penchant for including French repertoire in her jazz gigs and her shows. These French tunes are from her last 3 CDs. Available from juliarna.com Lots of musos play on these tracks- James Clark (double bass), Richard Miller (clarinet), Nigel Date (guitar), Michael Harding (piano), Stephen Grant (trumpet), Michelle Doyle (harp), Sam Lemann (guitar), Ashley Gaudion (sax), and Rod Gilbert (drums). I hope that is everyone. Apologies if I have forgotten anyone.... They are all my arrangements, except for the spaced out groove ending of La Vie en Rose- that was the brainchild of NIgel Date
